I Love Ice
Well. The stereotype about Northern Countries is well known to readers of this. Though have a good look at the pictures below and three arguments supporting why Riga beaches are must visit place in Northern Europe:I doubt that a guy from Sydney is going to Nothern Europe to visit beaches
- Riga Gulf has water temperatures that are well good for swimming. Now it is 20-22 Celsius and will get higher in July. That makes it warmer than all western European coastline temperatures (Portugal, Spain, UK).
- Riga beaches are not affected by tidal activities. That makes them much more convenient than UK coastline and Northern French beaches. The Baltic Sea is pretty shalow and doesn't get deep that quickly - I can walk in few hundred meters before the water gets to my chin.
- Riga beaches are sandy. That means it easy to walk along the cost line and get to the beach. You can drive a car along the shore and in the water. It is no allowed though but illustrates how convenient are they.
