Stayed in Sopot in August 2018. Always wanted to visit the Baltic seaside and it didn’t disappoint. Whilst the temperature of the water means you have to be brave to venture in the beach itself is very clean with toilets (albeit you pay) and plenty...More

The sand on the beach is soft, clean golden sand, we walked along in the winter sunlight, swans were swimming in the shallows and it was very beautiful. I'd like to come back in the summer.

Wide, long, sandy beach with restaurants, saunas and play ground for kids directly on it. Parents can watch their kids while sipping a drink on a hammock in the restautant also directly on the beach. Great place

Can you appreciate white sand up to the horizon? Ok, plenty of it here. On the other hand, it is quite likely you will come across seaweed, almost certain that you will come across plenty of people building their fortresses from screens. You can find...More

The beach of Sopot is very clean, spacious and has nice powdery sand. The only con was the seaweed, as there was a lot. But it might depend on the season.

From Sopot pier to the centre of Gdynia is about 6 miles, so it will depend on your walking pace ( between 2 to 2.5 hours ) By car it would take 12 minutes. The train is the easiest option .

Yes, a lot; plus large umbrellas. Sometimes, it is best to rent a spot and the equipment from one of the beach bar licensees and you can get service then. A bit like the Med. beaches, but not as expensive.

Gdansk with children in July (4 Replies)
Hi, We are going to spend a week in Gdansk in July with three children (3,7,9), we have a car with us. We are planning to go to Malbork at least and of course Gdansk old town and Sopot beach. What other places could be interesting to visit? I'd also appreciate any practical tips, good children friendly polish restaurants etc? Where would local families go? Thanks for the help, Kalle

Hotel Hevelius to... (3 Replies)
My husband and I will be in Gdansk next week, staying at the Hotel Hevelius. I was wondering how far it is to Sopot beach, or a beach area for sunbathing? What is the water temperature like this time of year? Also, what is the best way to get to the Hel Peninsula from my area of town? I believe the hotel is only a 5 minute walk to Gdansk Glowny station. Is there a boat to the HP?

It is very sunny right now and water temperature is about 20*C right now, but forecasts mentions rain next week... To Sopot beach you can go by SKM (suburban train), journey will take about 20 minutes + 10 minutes walk. In Gdańsk there are beaches at Brzeźno or Jelitkowo, reachable by tram no 13 (Brzeźno) or 2,6,8 (Jelitkowo). But those beaches are crowdy right now and unfortunately full of seasonal plants ;) I'd recommend you Sobieszewo - about 1h by bus no 112, much cleaner and quieter. ...More
