This lake is a great place to refresh in a close proximity to Vilnius. The beach has a good infrastructure with changing cabins, toilets, sport field, boat rental and a restaurant.

While visually the restaurant doesn't seem so authentic, it has a fantastic Indian cuisine. The lunch offer between 12 and 15 is tasty and usually served quick. Recommend to visit.

Kayaks are an amazing way to explore Riga from another angle. This rental had a wide range of kayaks and SUP boards for good prices. Staff is friendly and professional. Guided tours are available. Recommend to call in advance to secure availability and have staff present.
