Explore the Surroundings

Exploring the surroundings is awesome thing to do in Palanga. Many beautiful places such as Birute’s Park, Palanga Bridge, Love Alley, Birute’s Hill and others are waiting for travel explorers. Almost all of them are easily accessible on foot.

Though, Palanga is situated between the state borderline with Latvia and Klaipeda which is one of the biggest cities in Lithuania. Therefore, you can rent a car and visit the Breakwater of the only port in Klaipeda. It’s about 29 kilometers away from the resort town but it’s really impressive place, especially, when the wind is blowing stronger than usual. If you decide to go back through the Karkle village, Dutch Hat might be on your way to Palanga. In Lithuania that’s the highest exposure beside the Baltic Sea.

Also, there are more catching places around the resort town such as ‘Monkey Bridge’, Dino Park, Plazes Lake… Just keep going and one day you’ll be absolutely surprised what you discover.

Usually, each pathway through the pine forest toward the Baltic Sea will leads you on the beach. You can feel free to choose where you would like to take a pleasant dip in the restless Baltic Sea. Mostly holidaymakers gather around the Palanga Bridge. So, if you wish to keep away from the wild music and furious youth, you can choose the lovely places a bit further from the bridge.

Also, if you are a bit lazy or used to spend your spear time on the beach you are welcome to visit lovely open air terrace next to the Palanga Bridge. Terrace with the colorful bean bags are one of the most popular places on the beach. So, usually it’s full of holidaymakers but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try your luck in the ‘free bean bag lottery’.

I’m absolutely sure that both of these terraces are open in summertime but it might be closed during other period (especially the terraces on the beach).
