The Lighthouse - rebuilt in 1951, offers a picturesque view of the entire Vistula Spit, the Baltic Sea, the Vistula Lagoon and Elbląg Upland. You can't miss a visit to the Lighthouse while staying at Krynica Morska. Don't forget to count the stairs on your way up!

STATE BORDER - 12 kilometres east of downtown Krynica, there is a small seaside settlement of Piaski. Only about 3 kilometres further east is the NATO and EU border. The border is closely guarded and crossing it is prohibited. We encourage you to take a walk to the border because both the path through the forest and a stroll along the beach will be an aesthetically pleasing experience. You can also see the destructive effects of the waves. Don't forget to climb the vantage point from which you can admire a beautiful panorama of the Vistula Lagoon and the Cathedral of Frombork. Just a short distance before Piaski, there is a nude beach and this year naturists will surely visit these out-of-the-way coastal places.
CORMORANT AND GREY HERON RESERVE AT KĄTY RYBACKIE - It was established in 1957 and covers the area of 10.8 hectares (approx. 27 acres). It was created as an ornithological reserve with view to protecting the breeding sites of the black cormorant and grey heron. The pine treas growing in the Reserve are 100-120 years old. All visitors to the nature reserve are usually very impressed by this site so why not go and see it for yourself. The reserve in Kąty Rybackie is one of the largest in Europe; there are about 700 nests on the tops of 100-year-old pines. The protection of the black cormorant was successful and resulted in a rapid growth of its population.
"THE SCARP"- about 9 kilometres past Krynica Morska in the direstion of Piaski (2 km before Piaski) on the side of the Vistula Lagoon, there is a great vantage point overlooking the Lagoon and Elbląg Upland. The locals of Piaski usually call this place "the Scarp". It is a truly unusual place where you can observe the destructive forces of the waters of the Vistula Lagoon. Year by year, the slope is being washed away and a piece of land is taken by the water. It is worth visiting this place as you may run across some species of interesting birds, cormorants and cranes in particular. In the fishing port on the Vistula Lagoon you can see fishermen at work.

The forest is also home to the rowan, alder buckthorn, warty birch and downy birch.
