There are many pleasant bars and restaurants right on the beach up and down the promenade in Sopot. The beach is fantastic as it is pure sand and has great views up the coast to the Orlowo headland and down the coast to the shipyards of Gdansk.

Fantastic beach which never seemed to get crowded. A wonderful discovery and well worth a visit. Excellent range of beach bars serving reasonably priced food and drink.

We recently traveled to Gdansk and stayed for a couple of days. Out of curiosity, we asked our hotel reception how to get to the neighbouring town of Sopot by public transportation. We learned that we can either take the train for 10 Zlotys return ticket per person(ca. 3 US$) or by boat for 30 Zlotys per person. It takes 20 minutes to travel by train with a timetable as frequently as every 15 minutes back & forth. Boat schedules are less frequent and will take us an hour to travel each way with the last boat traveling from Sopot to Gdansk at 4:30 p.m . We decided to take the train going to Sopot and intended to return by boat. The train ride went well and very much on schedule despite the train itself being rather outdated. Arriving in Sopot, we took the short walk towards the beach, which is unlike any other place we've visited in Poland, but more like any other posh holiday resort. To promenade along the prominent wooden pier, one needs to purchase an entrance ticket for 7 Zlotys per person. With the late August sun shining brightly, we had a nice walk along the pier, watching jet-skiers and other tourists taking pictures, having lunch or sipping drinks in one of several restaurants. Coming out of the pier , rows of souvenir and amber jewellery shops line the footpath towards the beachfront of the Grand Hotel where we enjoyed some ice cream in one of the restaurants. All in all, it was a nice couple of hours at the beach. The problem came when we wanted to get back to Gdansk by boat. An hour before the supposed last boat trip, we wanted to buy our boat tickets, but nobody seemed to know exactly where to get it. After a few more inquiries, we were finally directed to the tourist info office where we were informed that the boat travels only twice a day - once in the morning and once in the afternoon at 1:30 p.m.. That was the time we arrived in Sopot. Obviously, the best choice is to go back the way we came, by train, which we did and fortunately again, very much on schedule. And by the way, the pier ticket is valid for one entry only. So, you can't get into the pier, come out & do some shopping and return even within the same hour without paying for another ticket.
