While Riga is known to be a location that is ideal for adventurous activities during the day and wild parties at night, there is also a peaceful and relaxing side to it. You can find out just how Latvians like to relax by planning a Sightseeing Tour. If you have taken some part in adrenaline raising events then this will be an ideal way to get yourself back into relaxation mode and ready for the final part of the holiday or a weekend away.
Once 8 of you have booked, you will be ready to start the 5 hour journey. Allowing for traffic you will get between 3 and 4 hours on the beach and Jurmala Town and that will be plenty of time to calm down, and watch the architechture and beautiful people walk by. You will have a guide who takes you to and from the Jurmala and this is a trip that can be booked throughout the year. Once you have finished watching the girls, you can take a dip in the amazing sea before heading back to the city.

from € 27 per person
The bronze statue of a turtle, which symbolises longevity, has been watching over the beach from his elevated position since 1995. Created by sculptor J.Bārda, it’s now one of the most recognised symbols in Jūrmala and it’s become somewhat of a tradition for tourists to have their photo taken next to it or, in some cases, on top of it.
Take your swimming suits and swimming trunks with you as the temperature of the water can raise up to plus twenty five degrees during the high season.
Is It Crowded?
If you are planning to visit Jurmala in Summer, please be prepared to meet a lot of people coming from a different part of the globe to visit Jurmala and Jurmala beach.
Jurmala beach is 33 km (21 mi) long, covered with white quartz sand. The shallow coastal waters are suitable and safe for children. The beach is equipped with playgrounds, small benches, football fields and volleyball courts, as well as descents for prams and wheelchairs. In Spring and Autumn amber pieces can be found on the beach.
