Mechelinki Cliff

Local name: Klif w Mechelinkach

In Mechelinki, Kępa Oksywska collapses in the Bay of Puck with a picturesque cliff which height ranges from 20-30 m above sea level. The cliff stretches over a few kilometers - from Mechelinki, through Babie Doły, to Gdynia-Oksywie. It is a great vantage point on the Gdańsk Bay, with Rewa, Jurata, Jastarnia, and Hel.

There are walking and cycling trails leading to the cliff. It is also a convenient take-off for paragliders. When going to a cliff, it is worth taking binoculars - it allows easier observation of birds, as well as marine objects, such as the post-German torpedo station located in Gdynia-Oksywie, where marine equipment was tested during World War II.

A nature reserve Mechelińskie Łąki (Mechelinki Meadows) is located in a short distance from the cliff. There are numerous species of nesting birds, including such rare species as the dunlin (the reserve is one of two nesting places of this species in Poland). It is also a resting place for migratory birds, such as starlings or wagtails, which can be observed in flocks of up to several thousand pieces.
