Sobieszewo Island is a seaside area of Gdańsk, with an 11-kilometre stretch of beach, only 15 minutes by car from the city centre. It’s one of three islands of the Polish Baltic coast. Also, since 1994 it has the ecological island status, which guarantees that it will be preserved in its natural state. Its proximity to the city centre along with a unique micro-habitat makes it a perfect accommodation for a seaside holiday.
Sobieszewo Beach is located along the eastern stretch of the Gdańsk Bay. The beach is wide and the dune belt protects it from inland winds. It’s perfect for sunbathing, swimming and romantic strolls. During the summer, there are two guarded beaches: Gdańsk Sobieszewo, by the end of Falowa Street and Gdańsk Orle (Lazurowa Street). Lifeguards are there every day from July 1 to August 31 between 9.30 – 17.30. However, the rest of the beach, though unguarded, is also perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
We especially recommend the beach by the Ptasi Raj nature reserve (Gdańsk-Górki Wschodnie), where you can find a quiet spot even in the midst of holiday season.
