The public beach of Rojas will welcome visitors at any time of the year! The sea and nature here are always special and seductive at any time of the year. In the winter, when our coast experiences a longer frost and the sea slowly cools down, you can start enjoying real winter pleasures by skying along the sea, skiing along the sea and when spring approaches, the impressive ice stacks can be seen on the Roja coast. Not every year in Latvia there is enough cold and long winter, thats why the ice stacks on our side do not occur every year.

In the spring, when ice is already gone and birds slowly begin to come back, then it's time to take a quick spring walks along the sea and watch birds. In the spring (May) on the beach after the winter sleep, the The Blue Hope Piglet returns, the author of the work is the artist from Roja - Maris Grosbahs. Our "Blue Piglet" have already become popular not only for locals, but also the guests are happy and captivate it in photographs.

As early as the 13th century people lived in this area - the Livonian tribes, who also gave the name to the river. This is the Baltic Finnish word and in Estonian means - "mud river", but in the Livonian language - "grass". The Roja river starts near Valdemarpils and it has about 10 small tributaries. In ancient times sailors used these tributaries for going inland. Baron Hahn of the Lubezere manor exported his products through the river Roja - alcohol, wood, etc. to Riga, St. Petersburg, Holland (17th century). Also today, the river has been adapted to boating and walking along the river banks.

Boating enthusiasts have an opportunity to rent canoes (up to 15 people) or a suitable pontoon for unhurried leisure, to take a trip along the interesting Roja River in the length of 14 km.
