Gdańsk also means beautiful and clean beaches.
Thanks to serious ecological investments all Gdańsk beaches have been opened in recent years and the quality of sea water is very high.
There are two guarded bathing beaches in Gdańsk: in Stogi and in Brzeźno. Other beaches are located in the Jelitkowo and Sobieszewo districts.
There are a couple of stationary water slides available on the Gdańsk beaches: two at the beach in Stogi, one in Jelitkowo and one in Brzeźno. There are also some inflated water slides, intended for the youngest beach lovers. The fans of active recreation can enjoy volleyball and football pitches and a walking and biking route which runs along the sea coast, from Brzeźno to Jelitkowo. A wide choice of catering facilities can also be found at the beaches or close by.
One of the attractions of the Polish coast is the 130-meter pier in Gdańsk-Brzeźno - a popular place for enjoying a rest, both for the residents of Gdańsk and for tourists. It is estimated that at the peak of the season the beach near Brzeźno is visited by 50 thousand people a day!
