This is such an interesting spot of land. Sand on one side, Baltic Sea on the other. Yes, do take the ferry, otherwise you have to drive through Russia, and that involves a visa. Great area to find amber in the Baltic. See the dolphin show in Klaipeda. Just beautiful, and the people are great!

A very unique place, very well managed considering the crowds going there in the SUmmer. It tends to spoil the general atmosphere. We promised ourselves we'll go back in a different season.

First, take the car-ferry from the "new ferry terminal", it's a short ride across the "canal" and you need to pay for the round trip (as well as getting into the actual park) so bring some cash or a credit card. On the upside, the cue goes quickly and the ferries go back and forth at least in the summer.... More

We went with a tour group (which is the only way to go) and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. There is a walk through the forest with 56 wonderful hand carved tree trunks with mythical figures from local folklore. The expressions on the faces were outstanding. Walking along the Baltic Sea side beach we found many amber chips. The sand dunes... More

We hired a private guide for a day trip to the Curonian Spit on the spur of the moment and were very glad we'd not missed this important part of Lithuania - their national park. We stopped at all the significant spots, enjoyed a pleasant lunch in Nida and kept remarking that one should not visit Klaipeda without experiencing the... More

The most beautiful place in Lithuania. This is a calm and quiet area with beautiful nature. I recommend 50 km biking trail from Klaipeda to Nida or back.

We took a drive to the Curonian Spit in a bus as part of a tour. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to drive to Nida, the main town. On the way we visited the summer home of Thomas Mann, of interest only if you know of his works. There is a lovely view from his estate. Nida is a... More

IMHO to get there on foot is a best way to get a pleasure from the dunes and sandy beach. But be ready for a strong (cold) winds. The only thing we dislike is a public toilet near the beach. It was chlorine so strong You hardly could be able to breath.

Yes - it is touted as World UNESCO Heritage Site, but that is for the old Curonian Tribes and culture mostly buried under the dunes - not for the totality of the Spit. It's a good place if you have a few days to relax, hike about and enjoy the nature and fresh seafood, but if you don't have the... More
