Gdańsk Bay and Żuławy Loop

It is said that on the coast of Pomorskie the beach goes from the sea to the forest. The outer coast is exposed to the wind and the sea and is constantly changing. Pomorskie is full of contrasts. A boat trip on the Żuławy Loop (Pętla Żuławska) is like a form of meditation. The water gently carries the boat through enchanting landscapes. Time seems to stand still here. Pure relaxation. A completely different situation at Gdańsk bay: the pulsating Tricity (Trojmiasto) of Gdańsk – Sopot – Gdynia is characterised by youthful creativity and bubbling joie de vivre.

The night life here is vibrant and a variety of cultural activities are on offer. There, where the Hel Peninsula (Półwysep Helski) extends far into the Baltic Sea, Gdańsk Bay (Zatoka Gdańska) opens up. To its south, the 70-kilometre long and scarcely 2-kilometre wide Vistula Spit (Mierzeja Wiślana) separates the Vistula Lagoon (Zalew Wiślany) from the sea.


The south coast of the Vistula Lagoon has a few small harbours which are well worth a visit. The Vistula Żuławy Delta area, encompassing the Vistula River Delta, is particularly attractive for boaters. You can either take the Żuławy Loop (Pętla Żuławska), which extends into the neighbouring Warmia-Masuria (Warmińsko-Mazurskie) Voivodship, or enjoy various other round trips. Various round trips are possible and boaters can even reach the Vistula Lagoon (Zalew Wiślany) from Gdańsk via the canals and rivers. In this part of Poland, boat tourists can enjoy pure nature everywhere and take relaxing cruises from sight to sight.
