Holiday attractions by the Baltic sea
Quick Sands Rąbka
How to get thereYou can get to Leba by car or bike. From Leba you need to follow the red route that starts at the railway station towards Rąbka. You can get there on foot (2,5 km), by bike, car or and off-road car running there in summer time from Leba. Rąbka is an important post in our trip – it is there that at the end of the World War II German armies were testing the V1s, long range missiles, and then V2 that were supposed to be used for the attack on USA.

What's next?The next stage is a 6-kilometre-road by the shore of Lebskie lake – you can walk, ride a bicycle (you can rent a bike on the spot) or rent a golf cart (called ‘meleks’ there). You will see the first signs of something peculiar there – a forest being buried by the sand from the dunes. The trees try to get away from the sand for a time, but then they give up and all you can see is dead cancerous stumps. Finally we get to the end of our trip – and we are in awe – wherever your eye can reach there is the desert… The travelling dunes, as the wind moves them, travel at 3-10 metres a year, devouring the forests. Lacka Gora at 32 metres above sea level is the highest sand dune and you must climb it to see a breathtaking view. You can get from there to the seashore and to the seaside beach. When you are filled with the impressions from the climb and the views, you need to go down – you can divert the return trip and walk by the beach to Leba (about 8 km).
Łeba – Summer capital of Poland[simple-weather latitude="54.760117" longitude="17.556312" days="2" units="metric" date="l"] Calendar of eventsŁeba is one of the most popular holiday destinations on the Polish coast.

Łeba ParkIt's a magical place. Each of us remembers the great impression that was made by Steven Spielberg film titled JURASSIC PARK. Leba Park is a Dinosaur Park in Leba. Scenes full of horror and terror interspersed with longing to commune with the ancestors of all living animals present in the history of our planet. Almost everyone dreamed of once a close look at these fascinating giants. Now since 2010, it became possible thanks to the arrangement of the area of 20 ha of ŁEBA PARK and although the whole thing is just an exact copy of that time the excitement in exploring often sneak out of control. The terrain and its natural beauty and proximity to the sea make the visit to ŁEBA PARK unforgettable. When preparing the project of ŁEBA PARK, special emphasis was put on the pleasure, fun and education of the youngest. During the tour each of the parents will have a unique opportunity to observe your baby in case of new, undiscovered, and unusual. Adults willing to relax will find moments of silence.S

Heritage Park in Kluki[simple-weather latitude="54.68191" longitude="17.332355" days="2" units="metric" date="l"] www.muzeumkluki.plAn excursion to Kluki, to the Heritage Park of Slovinian Village is a trip to the past, a tale of the core inhabitants of this land. The Museum of the Slovinian Village is situated within the Słowiński Park Narodowy /The Slovinski National Park/, added in 1977 into the World Biosphere National Park. In 1963 the Museum was open in Kluki. It was only just one Slovinian farm, but in the 80s and 90s new buildings were added. Nowadays this heritage park is situated on 10 hectares of land, with 7 houses, the oldest dating back to the 18th century, 7 cowsheds, 2 barns, 2 bread stoves, a boat and fishing gear depot and a fisherman’s hut.
How to get thereWhen you go on holiday to the seaside, close to Leba, it is good to go to Kluki and visit the Museum of the Slovinian Village. Goat Hill, a comfortable house for rent, gives you this chance to get to know a mystery that has been hidden up until recently – the history of Slovinians, the core inhabitants of Pomerania. You can go on a boat cruise on Lebsko lake to Kluki. The boat travels from Rąbka 15 km from Goat Hill. They sail in the summer from Rabka next to Leba. It is good to have a whole day for this trip. You can go there by car, Kozia Gorka, our comfortable house for rent, is situated about 50 km from Kluki.
[icon name="car" class="icon-4x"]The village name comes from its first inhabitants – the Kluks. They were Slovinians, according to social anthropologists they were the representatives of Slovians, that for a long time kept their own cultural and language autonomy. Their language was a mixture of German and Kashubian. Up until 1976 they all left their territory and left for Germany, since PRL’s government first tried to polonize them and then they repressed them. You can see bits of their history in a little cemetery in Kluki. We highly recommend visiting this unique place – in summer time there are various folklore events organised (baking bread shows, digging and drying peat). You can see for yourself what real “klumps” are …they are shoes for the horses, so that they do not sink in the slippery peat ground. You can get to Kluki by car, but we recommend taking and unforgettable and unique boat ride – it leaves from Rąbki near Leba, through Lebsko lake to Kluki. In summer months there are regular boat rides, but in other months you will have to book the boat in advance.

Interesting places to see
Słowiński National ParkSłowiński National Park is a national park in Pomeranian Voivodeship, northern Poland. It is situated on the Baltic coast, between Łeba and Rowy. The northern boundary of the park consists of 32.5 kilometres of coastline. Forests in the park are mainly made of pines. These trees cover 80% of wooded areas, there are also peat bogs of several types. Of animals, the most numerous are birds with 257 species. This is because the park is located on the paths of migrating birds. They feel safe here because human activities are limited. The most interesting species are: erne, eagle owl, crow, swan and various kinds of ducks. Among the mammals, there are deer, wild pigs and hares. There are around 140 kilometres of tourist walking trails. Beside the lakes are observation towers and along the trails one can find benches and resting places. Around the park there are many parking sites as well as hotels and camp sites, especially in Łeba.
A Lighthouse in StiloYou need to visit a lighthouse in Stilo near Sasino. When you rent the comfortable house in Goat Hill close to Leba, it is a good opportunity to go and see one of the biggest attractions while by the Polish sea – the lighthouse in Stilo. The lighthouse was lit for the first time in 1906. The name comes most probably from the name of two brothers Edward and Gustaw Stielow from Łeba. The last German lighthouse-keeper was P.Prutz, who was on duty there until 1945. Nobody knows what happened to him after that year. One of the 3 people that service this lighthouse is a lady called Weronika Łozicka. It is unique enough, since there are only 2 women lighthouse-keepers in Poland. The lighthouse in Stilo is situated 3 km from a charming village called Sasino; you can go there and see a beautiful palace from 1862. To get to the lighthouse, you need to walk through the forest for 1, 5 km (leaving your car in a car park). The view that spreads from the lighthouse is a sure reward for the climb up the steep stairs – all you see is green stretch of forests, quick sands In Leba and the Sarbsko lake.
Moving dunesTrips to the quick sands in the Slowinski Park Narodowy are something that stays in your memory for ever… There are travelling sand dunes, known as quick sand, unique in the European scale. The sand that the wind carries covers the live seaside forests, and the sand even tries to get to the human habitats. To stop this process most of the dunes were afforested –a lighthouse of Czołpino is situated on one of them. The sand dunes that are on the Słowiński Park Narodowy /The Slovinski National Park/, because of its desert-like character, are also called “the Polish Sahara desert”. This incredible and unique scenery is only 6 km from Leba, so 20 km from Goat Hill, if you travel by car or 16 km by bicycle. If you take a car, the distance of 3, 5 km in the beginning of the route goes on picturesque forest roads by the seaside, then you go on a rather solitary tarmac road, running through a forest and seaside meadows towards Nowęcin and Leba. The way that Goat Hill, our summer residence, is situated gives you a perfect chance to go to this land of sand, wind and water, that is to the Quick Sands near Leba.

Their taste and fragrance is immeasurable.

Taste the freshly picked berries, dripping with juice, just ready to eat them and enjoy in many ways. A taste of pierogis with blueberries picked in Goat Hill is an unusual culinary experience.

WindsurfingHoliday or vacation – time for windsurfing… Feel the wind blow. Get on the windsurfing board. A comfortable house for rent close to Leba gives you a possibility to go windsurfing on the lake and in the sea. Łeba and Sarbsk – These are the windsurfing spots by the Polish sea. Just perfect for both learning windsurfing and perfecting your skills. Sarbsko lake is an ideal place both for beginning and advanced learners of windsurfing. This is a wide and shallow lake, and because it is situated close to the sea, the winds there are just perfect. The Western Beach in Leba is a perfect spot valued by experienced windsurfers. This is where summer Windsurfing World Cup is held – FWC (Formula Windsurfing Class). Windsurfing or surfing with the wind was started in the USA in 1965. The pioneers of this sport are two men from California - Hoyl Schweitzer and Jim Drake. Windsurfing is about sailing on the board and it is a surface water sport with a use of a windsurf board, also commonly called a sailboard. The sailboard is usually two to five meters long and powered by a single sail. Windsurfing is a form of sailing with the use of a board and a flexible sail-like propeller. Windsurfing boards, with draught of 60 to over 300 litres, are divided in two categories – drop keel boards, up to 60cm in width, and boards with no keel, even up to 100cm in width. The propeller consists of a mast, boom, and sail of varying size. Depending on skill, the size of a sail is adjusted to the strength of wind and sailor’s size, between 1 and 12.5 m2. Windsurfing began as a family pastime, but over the past several years it has evolved into an extreme sport. Sailing was replaced by skimming. Lovers of high adrenaline doses are growing in numbers, and windsurf skimming at high speed guarantees such excitement. Steady draught sailing is outdated for those free spirits. They want more and modern windsurfing equipment helps them to achieve their goal. Experienced windsurfers go so far as to surf ocean waves, jump steep high swell, and do complex acrobatics in the air. Air-dancing windsurfers are able to rise as high as one meter above the surface of the ocean! That’s what we call wave! Skimming style is determined by the type of sail used (Wave/Allround/Freeride/Freestyle), combined under one acronym WAFF. Add indestructible kevlar boards for wave experts and you can glide on. Exciting sailing begins at 4 in Beaufort’s scale (wind strength), when flags begin to flutter and small waves gain in length. All you need now is the right spot and windy days. „Blow, wind, blow...” this plea to the element sings in the souls of windsurfers, for their performance on waves depends on the wind. For those experienced windsurfers we recommend: - windsurfing in Leba (In the sea) - Habenda windsurfing base by Sarbsko lake (seaside lake with local thermal wind, average depth of sea is 1m)Details
