We decided to visit the beach late afternoon. It's very easy to got here from the city, we took tram No 6 - stop is in front of the main railway station (also tram No 8 is going the same direction). The ticket costs 4.80PLN zl. From the end of the tram at Jelitkowo it's about 5-10 minutes walking. When we were there it was a bit windy but we simply enjoyed being there. It must be very nice in the summer. Going to the beach we passed a restaurant where oldies have outside dancing party. You should visit it.

Jelitkowo (until 1945: Glettkau) is one of the three traditional Gdansk seaside resorts (the others are Brzezno (ex Brösen) and Stogi (ex Heubude). It can easily be reached by bus and street car. Just cross Jelitkowo Park with its wonderful old trees, pass Parkowa restaurant (reasonable food at moderate prices), small plaza with fast food and souvenir stands, and you'll be at the beach with fine yellowish sand, about 200 yards wide and stretching for miles in both directions. As Jelikowo park stretches until the dunes limiting the beach at the land side, there are also shadowy places after 1 p.m., fine for people who just want to relax and read a book, for example. As everywhere in Gdansk, access to the beach is free.

People are in general dismissive of the Baltic beaches for summer holidays. I have never had this views I have spent many summer holidays on the beaches of Travemuende and since 1973/4 In Jelitkowo a suburb of Gdansk. Beautifull almost white sand in july and august the sand has been too hot to walk on without discomfort. People are friendly. In the last 4/5 years Sopo[t has had a major face lift and is even more attractive. There are good public transp[ort services, in fact excellent ones. trams, buses and trains
It's just good! I've taken my kids when they were little until after graduation.

We went here while on a city break in Gdansk. We hopped on a tram and this beach is at the end of the line. It was very peaceful and scenic, there’s a nice cafe nearby in the park where we had a drink and its a nice sandy beach to walk along. A lovely place to relax for an hour or two.

We were visiting Gdansk for one day and decided to spend few hours walking by the seashore. We took Uber which costed approx 55-60 PLN roundtrip (~15 euros). Walked several km towards bridge and ended up being in Sopot (no poblem to get Uber to Gdansk from there). Trip takes 20 minutes one way by car

My hotel was directly across and within walking distance to the beach. Jelitkowo Beach offers a beautiful view, nice sunbathing, and a nice mix of places to rest and eat. Also, connecting to the beach is a wonderful park with restaurants and small places to shop.

We wanted to go to a beach in Poland so we could see the Baltic Sea. We were fortunate that it ended up being a really nice day out, sunny and in the high 60s-low 70s. When we arrived, we were amazed that there were so many Poles there. I guess we should not have been surprised but we thought that since it was fall it would be deserted but as we have been told the Poles love the sun and this proved it.
There were a fair amount of cafes open and there were a lot of people on the beach wandering around and enjoying the sun. There were even people wind surfing.
The beach was clean and the water was a pretty deep blue. I would love to go back when it is warmer!

We were able to get to the beach via public transportation, #8 tram. took us right to the national park. The sands were powder soft, the water crystal clear, easy access to public facilities.

Lovely beach with quite warm water (for the Baltic Sea, that is) and good outdoor options. There are bike routes and food stands, plus it's a lovely walk either to Sopot beach or Brzeźno beach in Gdansk. My favourite beach in Gdansk, especially off the season.
