It is almost 50 km long and runs through the administrative borders of Gdynia and Gdańsk, which definitely facilitates access from most hotels or guesthouses, even by public transport.

When choosing a hotel in Sopot or Gdańsk, we do not have to limit ourselves to visiting these cities only. Gdynia has as much to offer us, so it is worth finding time for a walk there as well. Walking along the cliff coast, which is elevated up to 65 meters above sea level, we have a chance to admire the Swedish rowan, a protected tree species found only in Pomerania, the remains of the firing positions of the 11th Battery of the Permanent Artillery from the 1950s and the beautiful views from the Redłowo Promontory to the Gulf of Gdańsk.
The vantage point, the tower in Kolibki, offers a wonderful view of the Gulf of Gdańsk, forests, buildings, and is a perfect culmination of a walk in this area. It is worth climbing the stairs to the very top of the tower.
