Łeba is a town located in the northern part of the Lębork District, between Łebsko and Sarbsko lakes, in the mouth of the Łeba River on the coast of the Baltic Sea, surrounded with the forests of the Slovincian National Park (Słowiński Park Narodowy) and the Sarbsk Spit (Mierzeja Sarbska) Reserve.
Łeba received the municipal rights in 1357. Although it was a small town at that time, it extensively traded with Hanseatic towns.
The development of railway and road communication initiated the touristic history of Łeba. Due to its landscape and natural values, the town became a favourite leisure place of the German celebrities and artists in those days. Łeba started developing its touristic value only in the post-war period. Starting April 1945 until today, the town has been a very popular summer resort as well as a fishing centre.
There is a town in Poland, located at the Baltic Sea, enwrapped by two lakes, interwoven by picturesque river, lying among forests abundant in treasures and exuberant nature. It is a magical place where you and I can feel like someone very special all year round - Łeba
In springtime it is both an immediate destination and a home for the flocks of wild geese, cormorants, swans and ducks. Birds’ sounds always wake Łeba inhabitants from the winter sleep.
Łeba’s therapeutical microclimate, high content of salt and iodine in the air, high insolation as well as extraordinary dynamics of the atmospheric changes have a positive impact on human organisms.
Łeba is also a paradise for fishers, Nordic Walking enthusiasts, cyclists and the fans of such sport disciplines as windsurfing, diss wave, kite surfing or sailing. An interesting attraction is a modern yacht marina with excellent facilities able to house even up to 120 units.

A soothing sound of the sea, waves humming their unvaried melody, the fragrance of leaves, mushroom and pine needle-cover are the assets of the place which cannot be found anywhere else in such incredible scenes. Autumn in Łeba is a time of reflection and relaxation after an intense summer.
In winter, when the sun rises lazily, the sea can frequently show its rebellious character. Huge waves invade the beaches. Storms, strong winds or sometimes even strong hurricanes can pester the local inhabitants. The wind casts sand into the eyes and the sea murmurs ominously day and night. During frosty, quiet days, when the sun gets glassily reflected in the snowflakes, you can see beautiful forests covered with feathery snow.
At this time of the year an unforgettable memory can be a walk in the fluffy snow, a sledge excursion with the family or a sleigh ride by the sea. Or why not putting on a pair of cross country skis or grab some Nordic Walking sticks and try a slightly different form of activity at the Baltic Sea.
Łeba provides visitors with unforgettable activities in each season of the year, which clearly distinguishes it from other seaside towns. Here you can find things which can’t be encountered anywhere else throughout spring, summer, autumn or winter – check yourself and visit us now.
