Great beaches! Amazing scenery with miles of secluded coastline, totally unspoiled. Although the roads are not the best....but we did explore.

I visited the spit as part of an organised tour on a coach, and really enjoyed it. Not because we saw something 'amazing' or 'special' but because we were outside in a beautiful natural habitat, surrounded by fresh air, pine trees and sandy beaches.

It is a great place to wander around and just take in some scenery, and breathe some fresh air! Be aware of the weather though, as if it starts to rain it may get muddy. I'd recommend wearing long sleeve shirt or raincoat, and trousers with closed shoes in order to avoid picking up any forest insects (ticks) if you are going for a stroll into the 'dancing forest'. A beautiful place, but it is quite a long drive from Kaliningrad so be aware of this before setting off.

It's quite a drive, but you get out of town to see see, basically, a nature park with sand dunes, nice woods/nature/birds etc. Interesting history of the building and the myths of the Spit.
