Kąty Rybackie / Mierzeja Wiślana
The entrance to the Landscape Park is just a few steps away. There is a picturesque path to the beach through the Park and many cycling, Nordic walking and horse riding routes. The Black Cormorant Reserve and the Gray Heron can also be reached quickly and easily from this hotel.
Created in 1985, the Landscape Park "Mierzeja Wiślana" covers the area of 4,410 ha, including the eastern part of the Mierzeja from Sztutowo to the border between Poland and Russia. The area of the park is 80% occupied by forests, mainly pine forests with an admixture of beech, oak, alder and birch. Research shows that formerly about 5000 years ago, the Vistula Spit was covered with deciduous forest (oaks, oak-hornbeam).
The park's characteristic landscape features are wide sandy beaches along with the front dune embankments. The highest dune is "Camel Ridge", it rises to a height of 49 meters. An interesting element is also the varied coasts of the Vistula Lagoon with low banks overgrown with reeds, high dune cliffs and extensive and beautiful views through the Lagoon to the Elbląg Upland. The rich natural values are also manifested by the diversity of habitats of vegetation as well as flora and fauna. The park is located in the Natura 2000 network (entirely in the habitat area and partly in the birds) and in the HELCOM Marine Protected Areas Baltic System of Protected Areas.
There are nature reserves in the Landscape Park:
- The Kąty Rybackie Ornithological Reserve - protects the largest breeding colony of the black cormorant and the gray heron in Poland and one of the largest in Europe
- "Buki Mierzei Wiślana" Forest Reserve - the reserve covers and protects about 150-year-old beech stand in its natural environment
- The Mewia Łacha Ornithological Reserve - protects the landscape of the Przekop Wisła estuary, which is a refuge for birds of international importance (Natura 2000 area) and a place of occurrence of a number of interesting plant species.
