These WW2 remains stand on the sea at the coast of remote district of Gdynia called Babie Doły. It is not easy to reach but worth visiting especially if you are interested in modern history, or simply look for an attraction with a difference. It looks very picturesque especially in good weather when you can also see Hel peninsula in the background. You can also sunbath on the sandy beach or take a walk along the coast.
Car is the best option to reach it, but also you can take 109 bus from the centre and take off on the last stop, then walk up the main street (as everyone). You must reach the cliff at the end of the district (about 5-10 minutes walk). Next find the stairs which lead down to the beach. If you go by car you must find a park place what might be quite difficult as they are mainly private and closed to the public.
There are no regular boat trips to the station but I heard that there are some diving expeditions organised.

Had heard about this but was always surprised I couldn't find more info online - took 109 bus from outside Gydnia train station (got tickets at bus kiosk a few metres from train station - 6 zloty in total for out and back)
Get off at last stop and head up path / road to housing flats (all coloured differently and you pass a plane memorial ) - go right through this scheme of housing until end and you will find a small path that leads you down steepish steps and that is you at beach - the launcher is truly a remarkable site - was quite an overcast grey day which added to atmosphere plus the sea was so still - quite strange
Beach itself looked clean and had coastguard service - on a hot sunny day would be very nice (although take own refreshments / food)
Away from crowds as well
I only went to see launcher and was not disappointed - not often you see sights like that

Yes, nice but only if you like to submerge. That gives a nice feeling to be lost in the labirynth..And in the cold water

I stumbled across this torpedo launch station when i was going to the beach in Babie Doly, you can catch bus '109' from Gdynia city center and get off at the last stop.
The beach is so secluded and beautiful, and then you see this piece of history from the war.
SURREAL
