Visitors to the Spit spend their time swimming, boating, on forest walks, exploring the coastal villages or playing in the sand dunes - the tallest of which tower more than 60 meters above the waves. In winter, you can skate or try your luck at ice fishing rather than plunging into the water. While the forest walks, villages, and dunes might be covered in snow, these are just as lovely as during the summer months. The Spit covers 98 km and is just 400 meters wide at its thinnest, roughly divided equally between Lithuania and Russia's Kaliningrad. The Lithuanian half is easily navigated on a bike; boasting a cluster of museums and the port on its northern tip while its only town Nida is 50 km to the south. The Spit is mostly undeveloped nature, which has earned to both the status of National Park and UNESCO World Heritage site. It is assessable by ferry from Klaipeda.
