The longest breakwater in Latvia – the Northern Breakwater – was built at the end of the 19th century as a crucial part of Liepāja’s fortress and military port. The breakwater is 1800 metres long and 7.35 metres wide. It is a favourite spot for locals to watch sunsets and go fishing in the sea. The views here are magnificent when nature shows its might in the stormy seas.

There is a large parking lot by the Northern Breakwater, a great place to park your car. There are also lavatory facilities for visitors.
