Coastline of Curonian lagoon.

Section 72. Ventė – Dreverna.

Ventė – Dreverna Along the eastern coast of the Curonian Lagoon

From the Ventė Cape the Baltic Coastal Hiking Route goes down Marių Street (Road No. 2201) towards Klaipėda. The coastal scenery comes to life with colourful buildings featuring abundant wood decorations. Some of these house accommodation and catering establishments. After 5 km, the trail turns off towards the Curonian Lagoon and continues on along a narrow coastal trail through a mire forest. There are rest spots and watchtowers providing beautiful views of the Curonian sand dunes about 8–10 km away. Having made a loop of about 3 km, the Baltic Coastal Hiking Route returns to its previous course, and reaches the centre of the Village of Kintai in about 2 km, where it is worth taking the time to see its architectural heritage. After Kintai, the Baltic Coastal Hiking Route leads through 5 km of beautiful, pine covered dunes. 3 km before the Village of Dreverna the trail crosses Svencelė,  Lithuania’s most popular wind-surfing and kite-surfing locale. The place is bustling with resort development as new, alternative tourist accommodations, camp sites and catering establishments are being built. In the Village of Dreverna, the trail turns off on Bangų Street. It is worth going down to the Dreverna port, from where the majestic Curonian Spit can be seen across the Curonian Lagoon.
