Spacious sandy beaches, the port running tourist cruises, some good restaurants, interesting shops with amber jewelry
Probably a better place to visit off-season
In a nutshell
gold beaches and yellow amber
This was not actually a shop, just a small one-man operation on the pier. The smoking unit was behind, plus a table, chair and scales in front - a complete retail unit with no frills attached. This stall was particularly eye-catching being directly opposite the futuristic looking blue and white building on the pier. This building represents everything modern and cosmopolitan about Hel and is very far removed from the simplicity of one man selling his fish. The photo actually shows the other blue and white building behind the stall - a port a cabin WC!
What to buy: No problems deciding what to buy as there was only one item for sale - smoked fish. I didn't buy any because Iwasn't sure what fish it was and didn't quite have the vocabulary to ask. But judging by the amount of customers we saw coming and going, the product was more than satisfactory.
What to pay: A few zlotie per kilo
