Holidays at the Polish Baltic Sea
Location and orientation
The Polish Baltic Sea coast stretches over a length of about 500 kilometres. It extends from the Polish side of the island of Usedom in the west to Sopot in the east. The largest island in the Polish Baltic Sea is Wolin, located directly on the border with Germany. To the east is the small peninsula of Hel. In administrative terms, the Polish Baltic Sea belongs to Pomerania, West Pomerania and Warmia-Masuria.seaside resorts between chalk cliffs and beech forests
Along the Polish Baltic coast there are many former German seaside resorts such as Swinemünde on the islands of Usedom, Wolin and Kaseburg. Other seaside resorts are Misdroy, Kolberg and Gdansk. Many of the cities are still popular health resorts. Between the seaside resorts, the chalk cliffs of the steep coast alternate with flat coastal sections and long sandy beaches. Pine and beech forests partly reach up to the beach.
Because of its rich amber deposits, the Polish Baltic Sea is also known as the Amber Coast. In autumn and winter, amber is still washed from the seabed to land today.
Travelers and Activities
Many travellers are drawn to the historic seaside resorts for a beach holiday. In the "Kaiserbad" Swinemünde, bathers can look out over the sea from their beach chairs. The flat sandy beach of Misdroy with its lively promenade is popular with families. The beach of Leba is characterised by high shifting dunes. In the seaside resort of Kolberg, green rocks rise up to the beach, while bathers stock up on souvenirs at the beach promenade.The Polish Baltic Sea with dog
In the holiday home at the Polish Baltic Sea is usually also the family dog welcome. From 1 June to 30 September most beaches have a general ban on dogs. In Swinemünde, however, there is a special dog beach in the area of the breakwater. In Misdroy the dog beach is located west of the Baginski & Chabinka hotels, in Kolberg east of the Podczele district. In the municipality Rewal (Rewahl) there are altogether ten beach sections, at which dogs with owners may bathe.
