A sandy beach about 10 minutes' walk from Vecaki railway station, which itself is about 20-25 minutes away from Riga's central station.

Quite a good place to get ouf from Riga for a while. Lot of attractions for children and not only. Peaceful, but nothing working (except WC) at the end of season (September).
