On the Gulf of Riga, Jurmala is a fabulous town for relaxing on its white sand beaches and exploring its many museums and cafes.

Jurmala is a city in Latvia sandwiched between the Gulf of Riga and the Lielupe River. It has a 33km stretch of white-sand beach, and a population of 55,580, making it the fifth largest city in Latvia.
