The foot passenger ferries run from Klaipeda and cost under a euro return and coordinate with the buses. Nida is a pretty destination with access to the dunes, the lagoon and the Baltic beaches. There are good cafes and walking in the wooded areas. An...More

Crossing from Klaipeda is quite straight forward (get you schedule and beware of long cues on holidays!) paying just on your way in abot 13E per car with passengers (we were two). Once you are in the spit, if you head south you have to...More

We took a car ferry from Klaipeda and cost us 11.85 euro (driver plus one passenger) for return fare. The ferry ride takes only 5-6mins. Once on the island, we need to pay additional 5 euro to drive into the villages. Nida, the biggest village...More

Nice views and great place to be. One of the top sights to see and it is not disappointing - especially if you are a nature lover.

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

We are a group of 4 adults who will be traveling on a Baltic Cruise in late July. We are thinking of taking the ferry from Klaipeda to the spit and hiring a taxi to take us to Jodkrante. My questions are (1) do the taxi drivers on the spit speak English and (2) is our plan to see the spit on our own a good idea (versus taking a tour)?

We arrive on a cruise. How far is the ferry to the spit from the cruise terminal and is there public transportation on the spit, e.g. taxi or bus?
