Thanks to my host, I got to walk along these white sandy beach twice, once at night and the other next morning where we managed to find some amber, mostly by the local host :) A surprise indeed as I didn't have much expectation especially given the season, yet the soft and tiny white sand really struck me. Peaceful, relaxing... More

One of the nicest and most family-friendly beaches and surroundings in northern Europe. Clean, interesting dunes and forests just inland along with a whole complex of parks, a preserved dune landscape, aquapark, and a miniature train track beside a very cool outdoor museum. Amazing variety! Sometimes busy, but be careful about the water temperature-- if the weather is from the... More

Loved Ventspils beach, big sand dunes protect the large beach. It was not crowded at all with just couple people sunbathing and some kids playing in the sea. Very relaxing place with changing rooms, toilets and ice cream stall. It has been recognized as one of the cleanest beaches and has the blue flag.

Highly recommend Ventspils beach. We enjoyed a nice sunny day on the beach here. The sand is very soft and nice, and water was clean with a nice colour, and not too cold. Also it has just the right amount of development to keep a natural feel to it. Highly recommend. Plenty of parking nearby.

This beach is just amazing! WHITE sand that stretches for miles! Yes, the water is not that warm (Baltic sea after all), but the beach has plenty to offer. Lots of free activities for kids, climbing frames, swings, massive sea saws, etc. The beach has the Blue Flag, which means it's up to the very strict EU standards, there are... More

The beaches are well kept and there was very few people. Walked a bit to the side towards the surfers beach and enjoyed the great views with only a few other people.

This is the cleanest beach I've ever seen. The beach and the surroundings are very clean. On the beach there are changing facilities and play areas for kids. It's a pleasure to relax with family on this beach!
