N The Užava Nature reserve and the grey dune

The wide, pebbly, desert-like landscape of the grey dune surprises anyone who sees it for the first time. In the fields of pebbles, which are several kilometers long and several hundred meters wide, you can see the Sand Pink (Dianthus arenarius), while the lichen form a yellow, green, grey and black lacy ornament that cannot be found anywhere else in Latvia, the pebble deserts found in the surroundings of Užava are the only site where the eleven lichen species grow.

The South Pier

The piers were built in 1905 according to the project of port engineer M. Šistovskis. The promenade is ideal for taking walks and watching the setting sun, the might of the stormy sea, and huge ships calling at the port.
