Curonian Spit, a thin dune-covered spit of land dividing the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. We thus reached the port and took the boat which transported us to the northern end of the spit where we took a bus headed for the town of...More
Took a drive there, then a walk....quite beautiful!
Drive was first - a short (a very short) ferry ride. Then, drive and drive.....After that - a cool walk along the water and then in the forest, up the hill.....Amazing views....
We were there in late Sept. and most things were closed down. Also didn't help that it was cold and wet. Be aware that the vehicle ferry line can be very long on a Sun night. Think this would be a great place under the...More
I visited the Curonian Spit on a bus tour of the Baltics. We left from Klaipeda and saw the spit as a day trip, which was enough time to explore it all quite well. Whether or not you will fall in love with the spit...More
We visited the Lithuanian part of the 98 km long and narrow peninsula by taking the ferry in Klaipeda. Beautiful dunes and white beaches, a small village and the woods. Ideal for a walk or a biking tour on a sunny day.
So I rented from Baltic Bike Travel that is near the ferry form Klaipeda to Curonian Spit / Kursiu Nerija National Park. I have not cycled in a long time but this is an easy flat route on a path you cannot miss. There are...More
We visited here while on an excursion from a cruise so we did not get to see a lot of the Spit - but we loved what we were able to see. There are wild sand dunes, fascinating maritime forests and lovely towns. It was...More
I agree with Jon: Villages are accesible. You can enjoy plenty of places just by car and I am almost sure that The observatory of the big rolling sand dune of Parnidis is also accesible at least as far as the sundial (there... More
I agree with Jon: Villages are accesible. You can enjoy plenty of places just by car and I am almost sure that The observatory of the big rolling sand dune of Parnidis is also accesible at least as far as the sundial (there is a deck with stairs to get closer pictures of the dune). As for the trails I cannot be sure as ours was a daytrip so no time for big walks. The little trails we did were not wheel-chair accesible.

Helen, we were there on a cruise 2 years ago and wanted to do exactly what you describe. However, after much research, we decided to rent a car and make the drive ourselves, which turned out to be a great decision. We rented the car, took the ferry to the spit, and drove. Make sure you stop at the hill of witches. If any of you are able to drive, I would highly recommend you take your own car.
