Great wave sea.

Section 7. Jūrkalne - Sārnate.

Practical information

Length: 14 km

Duration: 5 – 7 h

Start: The viewing area of the Baltic Sea bluff, opposite Jūrkalne 

Finish: Sārnate Beach

Itinerary: Jūrkalne – Ošvalki – Sārnate

Road surface: Sandy, pebbly beaches (with pebbles of different sizes) and sandy – beaches, in some places, small stones.

Difficulty level: 

Obstacles: You can wade across the brooks.

Dangerous places: The bluffs are formed (collapse) as the sea washes away the shore and also as the rain water washes out their slopes. You can come across landslides, landfalls, rockfalls. You must not use the bluffs to move forward in places where stairs have not been installed (they can be found quite frequently) or approach them too closely from the top and the bottom. Landfalls mostly occur during storms (or after storms) and after heavy showers, but may also occur at other times.

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

You have to shop in Jūrkalne as there are no shops in Sārnate. Walking poles are advisable for support.

Alternatives: Vigorous walkers can combine this section with the next day’s one and finish the itinerary in Užava.
