After using the ferry from Klaipeda to the spit there is a amazing nature along it. including a huge wandering dune. At the end of the spit you can visit Nidda, where the former home of Thomas Mann is situated.

Bursting with great beaches, hiking and biking, and pretty seaside villages, the Curonian Spit has it all. This area is a Must Visit in Klaipeda. Expect to invest at least an entire day. Plan activities ahead.

We went to nida for this and although we weren't able to explore much... Just being able to see the spit and the many other natural and man-made wonders here made our trip from Vilnius worthwhile.

Great dramatic sandy beaches. Perfect for swimming, or just relaxing. Easy to find isolated spots, or you can join in with the very hospitable locals who will want to share food and drink (especially drink) with you. Make sure you reciprocate...take along some snacks or...More

Without doubt, the Curonian Spit is a wonder of bountiful Mother Nature, host to the delightful and surprising Kursiu Nerija National Park, which stretches for about 30 km down to the Russian border. This narrow spit of coastal dune sand forms a natural barrier to...More
