It is beautiful small and narrow island, some 2 and a half hours boat ride from Gdansk. Sandy beaches, beautiful greenery, small cafes and restaurants, lighthouse, open museums, picturesque little houses with flowers around... Really nice place to visit on a summer day.

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.

We took the 11 o'clock ferry from Sopot pier and arrived in Hel at 12:15 after a crossing on a very calm Baltic. The town is fantastic with many small shops for souvenirs, bars and restaurants. We followed the trail through the forest to the...More

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
