Part 1 of a Tri-City day trip from Gdansk
Okay, okay, living in a landlocked country had me craving a coastal walk, and I was alone, so I was going to have my coastal walk. If ambling 10km along a beach and/or through some coastal forest isn't up your alley, I hear Gdynia is full of museums that could strike your fancy, and there are public beaches in both Gdynia and Sopot if you are visiting in warm weather and a beach day is calling your name (I'd recommend Sopot in this case).
I took the SKM train relatively early in the day (buy tickets from vending machines in the station) then wandered around Gdynia a little. I stopped into a cafe then headed for lunch before returning to the coast to begin my walk.
There is a pier/fair area in Gdynia if you are someone who likes those type of attractions. I immediately headed east, past the first public beach until I reached the point of land you can see looking to the right after walking down from the city. Here, there is another beach, and if you go up into the forest, you will find trails that can take you all the way to Sopot.
I mixed walking barefoot along the beach collecting washed up flint with walking through the forest. I had the freedom to explore as I wished, and made my way slowly to Sopot throughout the afternoon in no haste.
