South of the Harbour

To the south of town are two or three streets of fishing cottages with pretty flower-filled gardens.

Beyond Lotmiškio gatvė a path leads along the coastline and through a wooded area to a meadow, dubbed ‘Silence Valley’. Here walkers can pick up the Parnidis Cognitive Path, a 1.8km nature trail leading to the mighty Parnidis Dune itself.

From here, the Kaliningrad border is 3km south. If you stick to the designated wooden footpaths, you have no chance of wandering into Russia by mistake. From the dune, the Parnidis Cognitive Path continues past the lighthouse and pine forest to Taikos gatvė.
