DISCOVER EAST BALTIC COAST BY YACHT!

East Baltic Coast is one of the closest yachting destinations – just one stop from Sweden and one stop from Lithuania.

Latvia and Estonia forms a joint sea basin and jointly it forms on of the four main destinations in the Baltic Sea for sailors – East Baltic. Together we form network of more than 40 yacht marinas in distance not more than 50 NM each from other. East Baltic Coast offers excellent preconditions for enjoying maritime travel and tourism offers since the coastline and islands carry unique cultural and natural heritage, clean nature and safe conditions in the sailing destination.

Here we are proud to present attractive and partly discovered Eastern part of the Baltic Sea with appropriate services in the yacht marinas.  

Although several harbours still are working on development of their infrastructure, most of yacht marinas in East Baltic Coast already are equalized their service level to the best standards, which includes safe navigation into harbours, secure environment and high level services in the harbor, easy access and clear information – while planning the trip, as well as during the sailing holiday.

East Baltic Coast offers different insight in architecture, lifestyle, culture and traditions. The biggest metropolis in the Baltics, Riga perfectly blends timeless tradition and cutting edge cool. Riga is a UNESCO World Heritage site of cobblestones and breathtaking river views, as well as Europe’s Wifi capital with almost 1,000 spots to get online for free.

With miles of sandy beaches, swaying pine trees and deliciously fresh air, eclectic architecture and plenty of fun, Jurmala is a resort like no other.

Important part in the list of the tourism attractions take unspoiled nature: Venta Falls, Europe’s widest waterfall, where the fish do some fine jumping come spring, is located in the heart of Kurzeme - the city of  Kuldiga (Kuldīga). The coastal shoreline - 30km in length - features the awe-inspiring 20m high Jurkalne Cliff.

Kurzeme is a natural fisherman’s paradise with fresh local catches of all kinds, many sold in the quaint coastline villages. Some places even invite visitors to take part in the process of preparing mouth-watering smoked fish.

A boating enthusiasts could spend the whole summer sailing between the ports and islands on Estonia's 3,700 km coastline. Well-tended marinas with mooring spaces for guests and amenities like saunas, restaurants and accommodation serve as a jumping off point to explore the surroundings. 

Seemingly endless rivers, lakes and coastline have carved as much of a place in Estonia's cultural heritage as in the landscape. Follow the current to serene beaches, waterfalls and recreation areas to enjoy Estonia's waterfronts.

Every region has its own traditional foods, and East Baltic Coast is no exception. Take your time and try local beverages in cosy cafes, restaurants in towns or at the local fisherman or farmer on the country side.
