Visited the place for a weekend with my wife. Amazing place with loads of food options, water sports and lovely beach. Very nice sand beach with plenty of Jelly Fishes. One can easily find live Jelly Fish. Amazing place for families, kids and couples.

The town was nice but way too packed, guess summer is not the best time to visit... The forts and bunkers had historic interest and free to enter. I just couldn't cope with the thousands of tourists there, it was too much.

A friend recommended Hel as a half-day trip during our vacation in Sopot. We're happy we took his advice on "going to Hel and back". Great town for people watching, restaurants and taking in the natural beauty. A haven for kite boarders and wind surfers....More

Beach in Hel is not the best I have seen, sand is not as white and water is not as clear as for example in Sopot, but it is definitely worth to visit. In combination with walking from downtown through the forest it was a...More
