“Too much traffic on the road, start early”
Review of Hel

Hel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2017

We were there with our kids. Hel Peninsula and Hel as a village is an excellent daily trip. We stopped before the town and we jumped into the Baltic see! Wonderful and what an experience! The village of Hel is touristic but we liked so much to stroll around. We walked all the way Wiejska pedestrian road and we returned from the coastal road. We strongly recommend this excellent daily trip!

Worth a visit only if you go by bike along the sideways path or by train.
Forget the car in the high season!! A place which can be beautiful for its beaches and its woods can turn into a real hell if it takes you 4 hours to drive 30km.
Talking to local people it's the same every day during the summer!

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.

Hel is a charming place with a long beach and quiet windy. It was nice to get away from typical touristically places like Gdansk and Sopot. Hel is still a touristic place but more from domestic tourists. It was long drive to get there. Especially long queue in Reda and Wladyslawowo to Hel. Definitely worth the drive.

I discovered this place on the internet and the description as "the thinnest peninsula in the world" made me think about some unforgettable place to visit.
Unfortunately it wasn't nothing special at all. You can reach this place both by train or by boat and the cost is quiet the same! Still you have to pay attention to the time schedule of departures because there are only two or three boats and trains a day leaving from Gdansk to Hel, so don't miss them! The place was really windy and cold! We wanted to have a walk a long the beach but after a while the wind became unbearable! There were no attractive places to visit or to see. On the table with suggestions for tourists places to visit there were only photos of some military rests of the second world war completely abandoned! Really nothing interesting!
Probably it is a good place for surfing but that's it!
A bit disappointing!
