Neringa. A Sandy Strip of Land Between a Lagoon and the Sea
If you haven’t heard the inspirational legend about the giant Neringa that poured the sandy dunes, you will surely hear it after you take a ferry from Klaipėda to the Curonian Spit, a unique UNESCO protected natural area. The trip is free of charge for the disabled.
Towns hidden by pine forests and white sand dunes, traditional fishermen’s homes, museums and hiking trails, sunsets under the sails, cinema under the stars and concerts at the lagoon make this place a favourite among holidaymakers and travellers seeking peace and tranquillity, families with children and people with disabilities. The latter can reach the sea and take a swim in a wheelchair, which moves well on a sandy beach and stays in the water. There is a path for the disabled near the lifeguard station on the blue flag beach.
