Road surface: Up to Roja, there are mainly sandy beaches with reedy and grassy coasts appearing shortly before reaching the town. Further on there is a forest trail and asphalt in Roja. After passing Roja, a gravel road and a beach with pebbles, sand and gravel of different sizes, as well as the grassy part of the seacoast. In Kaltene: a gravel road.

Difficulty level:  up to Roja,  between Roja and Kaltene.

Obstacles: In some places, the beach becomes narrower (when the winds create an inflow of water), but it can be bypassed via the nearby road. You can wade across the brooks during low water.

Dangerous places: You have to be careful when walking across the rocky beach as the stones can be damp, slippery (overgrown with seaweeds) and can move.

Good to know! Tents can be set up and campfires can be lit only in public rest areas designed for this purpose.

In case of strong NE and E winds, the coast may be awash with waves in some places. Then it is necessary to take forest trails or coastal roads. Suitable (closed) footwear is necessary, walking poles are advisable for support.
