Rewa Seaside Town
Rewa - a town with stunning views
The name of this charming town comes from its unique and most characteristic tourist attraction, namely a sandy, underwater ridge called “Rewa.” This ridge stretches from Rewski Cypel to the Hel Peninsula. One may wonder if it is possible to walk from Rewa to Hel? The answer to this question is the annual “Herring March” that takes place in August, where brave participants walk a 12-kilometer route through the shallow areas between Kuźnica Morska on the Hel Peninsula and Rewa near Gdynia.
The Rewa Cape is a popular tourist attraction, thanks to which Rewa has two unique beaches covered with delicate golden sand. These are the southern beach behind the cape towards Gdynia and the northern beach stretching towards Puck. Both beaches are guarded swimming areas, so any form of entertainment is closely monitored by qualified lifeguards.
Rewa, thanks to its unique cape, has become known as the birthplace of water sports. The Puck Bay is characterized by very shallow and warm waters, where strong winds blow, creating ideal conditions for water sports. Until recently, windsurfing dominated in Rewa, but now there are more and more enthusiasts of kitesurfing or wakeboarding.
Rewa - Relaxation and Nature. Sea Vacation
Due to its unique location, Rewa is not only a perfect base for active leisure and access to many attractions, but also surrounded by nature reserves, it is characterized by pristine air and a wealth of fauna and flora.
