Strand der Blauen Fahne

Seit 1999, weht am Strand von Ventspils während der Badesaison die Blaue Flagge. Dies bedeutet, dass das Wasser den internationalen Umweltqualitätsstandards entspricht und der Strand modernisiert und sauber ist.

In der Sommersaison kann man hier Volleyball- und Fußballplätze nutzen und sich in Cafés entspannen, aber die Kinder können verschiedene Spielstrukturen, Rutschen und Schaukeln ausprobieren.

Der Strand mit dem weißen, feinen Sand hat eine fast 80 m breite Küste und Dünen, deren Höhe an einigen Stellen bis zu 9 m beträgt, aber die Gesamtlänge des Strandes der Blauen Flagge beträgt 1,2 km. Die Strandausrüstung ermöglicht es auch für Personen mit eingeschränkter Mobilität, sich am Meer zu entspannen, indem Sie Holzstege verwenden und sich auf die speziell eingerichteten Plattformen aufhalten können.

Die riesigen Dünen des Strandes von Ventspils bilden die sogenannten natürlichen „Sonnenbäder“, die einen guten Schutz vor Wind bieten und es Ihnen erlauben, die Sonnenbadesaison früher als anderswo zu eröffnen.

Da die Gesundheit der Urlauber von großer Bedeutung ist, gilt in den meisten Gebieten des Strandes der Blauen Flagge ein Rauchverbot. An den Orten, an denen das Rauchen gestattet ist, gibt es besondere Mülltonnen mit entsprechender Markierung.

Am Strand von Ventspils ist auch ein professioneller Rettungsdienst im Einsatz.

KIDS

Children can try out different playground equipment, slides and swings.

How safe is the beach for children?

After experiencing cases, where young children disappear from the sight of their parents on the beach and, due to confusion, they are no longer able to find their way back within the large beach area, there is a sticker of an easily recognizable animal on each entrance stand, which allows a child to be aware of his location, in case he gets lost. At the entrance, the parents should show their children these drawings.

At each entrance, you will see an image of an animal: entrance No. 1 – a rabbit; entrance No. 2 – a cat; entrance No. 3 – a fox; entrance No. 4 – a bear; entrance No. 5 – a lion; entrance No. 6 – a hedgehog.

What should the parents remember when going to the beach together with their children?

The parents can always ask for help from the rescue service workers, who are on duty the entire day.

Children should wear inflatable swimming arm bands in bright colours, while being near water, thus helping them stay afloat. Moreover, the child will be easily recognizable among others.

The child should be told what to do in case of getting lost, assuring that the rescue service base is the safest place to go, which will also be the first place the parents will turn to. If there is no rescue service on the beach, you can agree on another well visible place where the child can go and wait for his parents in case of getting lost.

What should the parents remember about the child’s safety on the water?

Never leave your child alone in the water. The parents must always be present, as the child may easily go under the water.

Never leave the child alone floating in a swim ring or on an air mattress. The waves may turn over the swim ring, and it is unlikely that the child will be able to turn it around by himself, but a mattress can be drifted further into the sea.

Never choose your place of staying near the volleyball court.

In order to ensure maximum physical safety of the child, the beach should be visited only under the supervision of adults.

In case of witnessing a situation, where the life of a child or an adult is in danger, we urge the visitors of the beach not to remain indifferent and immediately seek for help and inform the Ventspils Municipality Police, calling 63680808 or 28680808.

LIFEGUARDS

There is also a professional lifeguard service on the beach of Ventspils.

Where are the lifeguards located and what are their duties?

During the entire bathing season from 15 May to 15 September, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., lifeguards are on the duty on the beach, ready to help people in distress. However, always remember to keep yourself and your children safe!

What do the red-yellow flags at the lifeguard towers mean?

They show the supervised area of the beach in accordance with the standard set by the International Life Saving Federation.

  • A red over yellow flag: swimming allowed.
  • A yellow over red flag: no swimming allowed.
  • A red over yellow flag together with a yellow flag: dangerous to swim.

The sea is sometimes deceitful, and on hot summer days, you might see the sign “No swimming allowed”. The cold northern currents may bring very cold water (even 4 to 5oC in the middle of July). Hitting the cold water in hot weather may cause the cold-water shock, which can be lethal. Therefore, if you see the sign “No swimming allowed” or “Dangerous to swim” and the respective flags, it really means that swimming is not allowed.

Do I really have to pay attention to the flags?

The signs set up at each footbridge that enable the access to the beach indicate whether or not the swimming is allowed. They also indicate the water temperature and text on the background of the respective colour: green background with the text “Swimming allowed”, yellow background with the text “Dangerous to swim” or a red background with the text “No swimming allowed”. The sign “No swimming allowed” means that you are not allowed to go into the water due to a specific reason, usually due to severe weather. The sign “Dangerous to swim”, on the other hand, means that swimming is allowed, but the Rescue Service warns you that you should be extra careful, usually due to high waves and currents, which may drag you under the water. Therefore, special care should be taken.

SOUTH PIER 

Is it safe to swim at the pier?

Approximately 100 m from the southern pier, there is a sign indicating that swimming further is not allowed. This warning is also displayed in several languages directly on the wall of the pier. Swimming here is dangerous even in calm weather, as the water currents hit against the pier, creating whirlpools, and not even the best swimmers might be able to get out of them. Therefore, no swimming is allowed here.

The beach area is very large. How do I find the way through it?

The beach can be accessed over footbridges, which are numbered. For instance, No. 4 is indicated at the central entrance at the end of the street Medņu iela. Also, the corresponding number of circles is indicated on the changing cabins, located on both sides of the footbridge No. 4 – four yellow circles, which facilitates moving around the beach not only for children, but also for adults. Thus, a meeting can be set at one specific footbridge.

Neben dem Strand an der Südmole befindet sich ein Aussichtsturm (19 m über dem Meeresspiegel). Der Strand bietet auch einen separaten Bereich für Nudisten, sowie auch einen völlig modernisierten und sauberen Surfing-Strand, der sich über 500 m erstreckt und mit besonderer Ausrüstung zur Vorbereitung, Aufbewahrung und Trocknung des Surf-Zubehörs ausgestattet ist.

Damit diejenigen, die bereit sind, den Meereswind zu herausfordern, schneller zum Strand gelangen könnten, wurde gerade am Meer ein Parkplatz eingerichtet. Neben dem Strand liegt auch der Yachthafen von Ventspils.

Die Liebhaber unberührter Natur und Spaziergänge mit ihren vierbeinigen Freunden werden ganz bestimmt den neulich angelegten Holzsteg Nr. 10 am Ende der Straße Saulrieta iela hochschätzen. Die zum Meer führenden Fußwege der neugebauten Infrastruktur führen durch das Gebiet der Grauen Düne der Schutzzone von europäischer Bedeutung. Daneben befindet sich auch das neuste Objekt des touristischen und militärischen Erbes von Ventspils – der Turm zur Feuerkontrolle der Küstenbatterie Nr. 46 von Ventspils.
