In efforts to make money, sections of Jūrmala Beach are now rented out for cafés and bars. They play music and attract different kind of a crowd. The days where you could go to the prestine sand beaches and sooth your soul and spirits in the wonderful sound of the waves is unfortunately over. Lots of visitors from Russia in the summer months especially and their code of ethics and behavior is somewhat different. No wander there are "no Russians" resorts in the Middle East...

We had a day's stop over in Jurmala the highlight of which was walking along the surprisingly crowded (for this time of year) but very lovely beach. It was a beautifully sunny but freezing cold day however I'm a beach person at any time of year!

Seeing the frozen sea (for about a mile out) was surreal, people were walking out on the Baltic however I wasn't so brave.

If it was this good in winter I can only imagine how lovely it'd be in summer and I very much hope that I will have the opportunity to return and actually feel the warmth of the sun.

An absolute must-do. It's a long beach and the wind was cold but it's the best thing you can do when you're in Jurmala

I was on a Baltic Cruise and had a stop in Latvia. We took the bus tour to the beach. Although it was an unusually cold day I am told, it was a beautiful stretch of beach with very few people on it. It would accomodate a large number of beachgoers. It was pretty.

I arrived there with a latvian boy at midnight, it was unexpected to know that place, I had not planned anything.
