A special place to see. The sea is normally quite cold, but the beach looks beautiful any time of the year.

Perfect place to start to walk for a long or short distance outside of Jurmala any season. The best way is to go to the west side. Actually we can reach Kolka village. The border of Baltic sea and Rigas Bay. But it's about 100...More

This beach is beautiful to walk up. You could walk for miles if you desire. The weather wasn’t great for us, but we enjoyed it anyway.

It's a very long beach and about the same all along: you can wade out very far in the water before it starts getting deep, and the sand is very nice, no rocks. People love to take long walks and bike rides along the shore....More

It takes about 30 mins by national rail. There is NO tram going there. Tram is operating only inside Riga and Jurmala is a different city. Hope this helps.

Jurmala beach transport (6 Replies)
A large group of football fans will be in Riga in mid july for a Europa league game and need to know is it easy to get from the old town to Jurmala beach and how much it would cost if we took a minibus between us? How long would it take as we're thinking of going on the morning of the game for 3-4 hours. Great forum you's have here and very helpful.

July and August are the 2 months of peak season, so train is the easiest and the cheapest way to Jurmala, it takes only 40-45 minutes to get to Majori beach, BUT trains get really very very crowded, sometimes you can't even get into the train. Maybe due to the crisis, there will be less people, but I wouldn't count on that, since, for example, yesterday in Bulduri, which is not as busy area of Jurmala as Majori, and all the cafes and restaurant were full. But, who knows:-) Small route...More
