In the Seaside Regional Park, the Baltic Coastal Hiking Route runs along the beach, which is part of a nature reserve. It is prohibited to walk anywhere else than the beach. The territory of the reserve may also be by-passed by the pedestrian-cyclist lane from Karklė to Nemirseta (marked with a brown line on the map).
