Sopot is a Baltic spa town, once the holiday choice for Polish aristocracy, and now popular with less well heeled visitors as well, catering to guests who like to shop, eat and drink well, take an interest in cultural and historic sites and enjoy beaches with fine, pale powdery sand and clean water. The water isn't known for being warm – the only time it's really inviting is in late August, early September, but watersports that involve a lot of staying out of the water, and beach activities that don't involve getting wet at all are all very popular. Beach volleyball is one of the less obvious sports in question.

The sand runs for a couple of kilometres, so even when it's crowded in summer it's still possible to get a spot to yourself.

Sopot is known for its nightlife as well. You're not supposed to drink on the beach, but it's the perfect place to have a few before the clubs open, and people do.
