The resort is quite small and has a very specific pine forest character. You can easily walk across the whole village on foot or rent a bicycle. Prior to 1928 it was a fishing village. Jurata is also the name of a Slavic pagan godess of the Baltic Sea. The village was named after her.
As a primarily beach village, visitors will spend most of their time sun-bathing and swimming. While the water is of excellent quality, it is cold at times, and visitors should watch for small jellyfish. Jurata also has excellent wind-surfing opportunities - renting, lessons, etc.
Jurata is known for its amazing seafood - all varieties, in all forms. Visitors can also sample traditional Polish crepes and cabbage rolls, while more Western food is available as well.
Primarily nice, clean, and quaint small villas and apartment-style rooms, though Western resorts are gradually being built.
