The peninsula is a narrow sandy spit, separating the Bay of Puck, the western part of Gdansk Bay, from the Baltic Sea. Hel Peninsula with its two main towns Jastarnia and Hel is a holiday resort for the greater Gdynia-Sopot-Gdansk metropolitan region.

It can be reached from Gdansk central station and international airport by train, car and by boat during the summer months.

 

The Polish coast and Hel peninsula

The Polish Baltic Sea coast is approximately 528 kilometres (328 mi) long and extends from Świnoujście on the islands of Usedom and Wolin in the west to Krynica Morska on the Vistula Spit in the east. For the most part, Poland has a smooth coastline, which has been shaped by the continual movement of sand by currents and winds. This continual erosion and deposition has formed cliffs, dunes, and spits, many of which have migrated landwards to close off former lagoons, such as Łebsko Lake in Słowiński National Park.

Hel Peninsula is a part of the Puck County of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, and located close to the metropolitan area of the Tricity: Gdynia, Sopot and Gdansk, with more than 1 million inhabitants, for many of which it serves as a recreational refuge.
