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.
In the summertime, you can enjoy warm sun, swiming and a variety of sports activities such as beach volleyball, football, but for children there is a nice, colorful playground. At permitted places in the sea you can take a ride with water bikes or kiteboard, as well as various other extreme sports activities.

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.

The route can be adjusted as needed. The long option is to walk along the wooden boardwalks, the sea-coast and the North Mole with a lighthouse at the end. The boarwalk leads along the oldest dunes that have overgrown with forest as well as the gray dunes. There you can notice the various coastal plants growing here. The route can be continued back along the sandy beach. Most active travellers can “stretch out the legs” on the boulders of the North Mole and walk up to the very end of the Mole.
