Scientists claim that the Orłowo Cliff is a meeting place of the sea and the high moraine with the high shore erosion processes occurring, which creates a very steep shore, referred to as a cliff shore. All this is true but it does not reflect the outstanding beauty of this area of the Gdańsk Bay shore.
In northern Gdynia, near its boundary with Sopot, there is the Orłowo district. Next to it there are the forests of Kępa Redłowska. Kępa, being a fragment of the moraine hills cut off from the rest of the moraines by the valleys of water streams, is a special place for at least two reasons. First, it is covered by thick, natural forest located almost in the very centre of a big urban agglomeration; and second, for over 60 years a natural reserve has been located there which protects the natural woods and the specific flora sustained there from ancient times. The forest meeting the sea creates a cliff which is beaten by the sea wavesl and being very steep and constantly washed by waters, it keeps moving back against the power of the sea. The ravine going back becomes more and more steep as it gets close to the highest part of the hill. So year by year the Orłowo cliff becomes more and more monumental.
