Jurmala, Latvia, a Baltic seaside town 30-45 minutes from Riga, is a crazy packed place in summer. In Autumn, few people visit Jurmala but the water, beach and sun still beckon. Lovely multi-mile long beaches with light blond sand and crisp water under blue skies call nature lovers to bow before her.
