The three best towns on the Baltic Sea for seniors.  Here you can relax away from the crowds of tourists

In these towns you can find empty beaches even in high season. Seniors can count on a break here from the noise and hustle and bustle of the city.

Choosing the right place on the Baltic Sea during the tourist season is a real challenge. For those who do not want to spend their long-awaited vacation on a deckchair squeezed between screens next to the calling sellers of boiled corn, we have prepared a list of three quiet seaside resorts. These are perfect places for seniors, where you can find empty beaches even in July and August.

Geese in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship

The small village of Gąski is usually inhabited by about 500 people. However, you can easily find rooms for rent and summer houses here. The town is located in the protected area of ​​the Koszalin Seaside Belt, rich in sand dunes, forest areas and meadows. It is a small oasis of peace halfway between Darłowo and the health resort in Kołobrzeg. Although it is small, its attractions cannot be denied. We can visit here a neoclassical 19th-century palace with a garden and the third largest lighthouse on the Polish coast. The wide and quiet beach in Gąski is becoming more and more popular every year. It is worth going there now, before this charming town is discovered by other tourists.

Sands on the Vistula Spit

The town of Piaski (Nowa Karczma) is located a few steps from the Russian border, in the central part of the Vistula Spit. This sandy embankment separating the Vistula Lagoon and Żuławy Wiślane is sparsely urbanized and will certainly appeal to those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Seniors especially love Krynica Morska, which is becoming increasingly popular also among families with children. However, a dozen or so kilometers away we will find another undiscovered gem. The small village of Piaski (Nowa Karczma) lies at the very end of Poland. It is an old fishing village that was repeatedly buried by quicksand in the past. “The place will be appreciated by everyone who likes peace, quiet and contact with nature during their holidays. There are no bustling attractions so ubiquitous in neighboring Krynica. The beaches on the sea side are vast and can be reached in ten minutes on foot,” we read on the town's website.

Trzęsacz next to Pobierowo

Pobierowo during the high season may turn out to be too noisy even for those who don't usually shy away from entertainment. An hour's walk or a few minutes' drive separates us from Trzęsacz, a village with several hundred inhabitants, known for the ruins of the Gothic church of St. Santa Claus, towering over the wide beach. Over the years, the seashore was abraded and inevitably approached the building, which resulted in the evacuation of its collections, which were transported to the Cathedral in Kamień Pomorski in the 19th century. Only a fragment of the southern wall of the church has survived to this day, which has become a permanent part of the seaside landscape. Trzęsacz offers many different attractions, but it has not lost its character as a quiet holiday resort. Seniors can go to the viewing platform on the beach or walk along Pałacowa Street, where small-leaved linden trees grow, recognized in 2003 as a natural monument. From Trzęsacz we will take a narrow-gauge railway to Gryfice, where there is the only collection of historic narrow-gauge steam locomotives in Poland.
