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 other side of Hel which has a long golden beach and is stunning. The sun shone and we enjoyed our 4 hours on the peninsula before returning for the 17:00 ferry back to Sopot. A must whilst visiting Sopt, Gdansk or Gydnia.
