Located 35 mi/60 km northwest of Gdynia, the resort of Leba (pronounced WAY-ba), Poland, has tall, Sahara-like sand dunes and long, broad, pretty beaches.
Much of the area is within the Slowinski National Park, where you can walk, bicycle or take a carriage. Several campgrounds (with wooden cabins for rent) are nestled among the pine forests. Avoid summer weekends, however, unless you like crowds—that's when Leba is overrun with holidaymakers (the beaches are considered some of the cleanest in Poland).
You can follow the beach to the village of Czolpino (refreshments and camping available). Farther south (5 mi/8 km) is Smoldzino, which has a natural history museum (Muzeum Przyrodnicze).
