Klaipeda city resort area Melnrage is one of the most popular seaside attractions. It is divided into two parts – the southern part is called 1st Melnrage and the northern part is called 2nd Melnrage. 2nd Melnrage beach in 2020 received a globally recognized quality mark – the “Blue Flag”. There are five such beaches on the Lithuanian coast this year, to have this mark.
2nd Melnrage beach is mostly chosen by active recreation lovers. On the beach, holidaymakers will find equipped playgrounds, volleyball, handball, sand basketball courts, exercise machines, changing cabins and showers. Lifeguards take care of the safety of the holidaymakers, and a medical point is installed in the lifeguard’s station. 2nd Melnrage beach is also adapted for people with reduced mobility – they have a path, toilets, as well as a parking lot.
Unlike I Melnrage beach, it is surrounded by pine forests and a calmer atmosphere, with significantly fewer residential and accommodation establishments.
You can come to 2nd Melnrage beach from Klaipeda on your own transport (car or bicycle) or by public transport. The bus from Klaipeda stops at the 2nd Melnrage stop, from where the beach can be reached on foot in 5 minutes.
If you get tired of spending time on the beach, you can take a walk in the pine forest, try the seaside path connecting Klaipeda with Palanga, walk along the coast to the North Pier. Along the way, you can see the remains of defensive fortifications reminiscent of the Second World War, and on the pier – the sculpture “Walk with a fish”
