Roja beach is one of the most comfortable beaches in Latvia and its boardwalks – of the few fully accessible to everyone – people in wheelchairs, parents with baby strollers, seniors etc. There are also football and volleyball courts on the beach and a spacious playground for children. The informative stand contains information also in Braille with the tactile map of the beach.
The route can be adjusted as needed. The long option is to walk along the wooden boardwalks, the sea-coast and the North Mole with a lighthouse at the end. The boardwalk stretches along the oldest dunes that have overgrown with forest as well as the grey dunes. There you can notice the various coastal plants growing here. The route can be continued back along the sandy beach. Most active travellers can stretch out the legs on the boulders of the North Mole and walk up to the very end of the Mole.
