Family holidays in Jūrmala
Jūrmala is a place of exploring and adventure for both adults and children, so lets meet this summer in Jūrmala…
To enjoy the nature:
- Nothing compares with a sunny summer holiday near water. Maintained beaches (including the bank of Lielupe river) will give you an opportunity to choose from beaches with volleyball nets, children's activities, let you mingle with summer visitors or find places for undisturbed picnic in dunes covered with bent.
- Parents will appreciate how diverse the holiday in Dzintaru Forest Park can be – with its playgrounds for different age groups, skate-park, roller skating rink, and basketball hoops. But beautiful landscape of pine trees and blueberry bushes will invite everyone to have a rest a beautifully designed bench or have a sip of coffee in the park’s café.
- In the city centre nearby you can join photo-orienteering adventure, discover new sites in Jurmala or on a rainy day seek for a shelter in Jurmala’s Butterfly house with a tropical landscape.
- A curious family can take a trip back into history with the 17th century sail boat “Lībava” – sailing down the Lielupe river and the Gulf of Riga. The passengers can help putting on the sail, but the team of the boat will take you for an excursion around the deck of the sail boat.
To take a break:
- A picnic basket on the beach or a swim in a crystal clear and warm outdoor pool is on the daily offer of Lielupe by Semarah Hotel, but you can enjoy the special offer when choosing “Family holiday” – staying in the hotel or five hours long “Family adventure” with a swimming pool, sauna, salt room and big pizza to end the beautiful day.
