Great wave sea.

Section 8. Sārnate - Užava.

Practical information

Length: 15 km

Duration: 5 – 7 h

Start: Sārnate beach located 0,6 km away from road P 111 connecting Liepāja and Ventspils.

Finish: Užava beach next to where the Užava River flows into the sea, opposite 

Itinerary: Sārnate – Užava

Road surface: Sandy, pebbly beaches (with pebbles of different sizes).

Difficulty level: 

Obstacles: When you get to the Užava Lighthouse, you have to take a trail through the concrete breakwaters. You can wade across the Užava River during low water. There is a bridge located 0,3 km away from the mouth.

Dangerous places: The bluffs are formed (collapse) as the sea washes away the shore and the rain water washes away their slopes. You can come across landslides, landfalls, rockfalls, so it is forbidden to walk on the top of the bluffs. For this purpose, use the stairs. 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.

The closest shop is located in Užava.

Alternatives: Vigorous walkers can combine this section with the one from the previous day Jūrkalne – Sārnate and start in Jūrkalne.
