Approximately, the cycling paths run around 90 km, so to rent to bicycle and go around the area is really one of the top things to do around here.
Watch a sunset at the Palanga Bridge as it is one of the best things to do during those warm cozy summer evenings!

Go to the Dutchman’s Cap because it is only 20 minutes away from Palanga with a car but there is no other place so magical and mesmerizing on the Palanga seaside as this one.

It is no doubt one of the best thing to do because when swinging on the swing set that’s hanging there you will feel as though flying just above the Baltic Sea!
