Jūrmala has a long white beach (33km) and is the most popular and largest seaside resort in the Baltics. People eagerly promenade on the beach and there are cafés, resting benches and playgrounds.
A swim in the Baltic Sea is very refreshing. When we were there, the water temperature was a pleasant 16 degrees!
