The attractions of Jastrzębia Góra and surrounding areas
Jastrzębia Góra is worth visiting not only because of the unique character of the resort itself, but also because of the large coastline views. The town is located on a cliff coast. Despite the existence of cliffs, Jastrzębia Góra is not without access to a beautiful, wide beach. This beach does not lack beauty - on the west, the beach is sandy, and on the eastern ends it is pebbled. The cliff itself: On one side beachgoers have to climb hundreds of steps, and on the other only a few dozen. The beach is bustling with life throughout the summer season, but you can always find a place for yourself there. In autumn and winter, it becomes a place for countless walks for people seeking relaxation and breathing in the purest, iodine-rich air. It is also a meeting point for sea bathers, people who derive joy and value from swimming in icy water. During the holidays, the main beach entrances are guarded by an on-site lifeguard. In addition, with dedication to sports enthusiasts, the beach is equipped with two beach volleyball courts. In the evenings, the beach is populated by sunset lovers and enthusiasts of night-time campfires. It is worth visiting the beach at two different times of the year to experience its wonderful scenery throughout the year.
Cliffs in Jastrzębia Góra
Jastrzębia Góra can boast some of the highest cliffs on the Baltic coast. That is why Jastrzębia Góra is so unique. The 33-meter-high Jastrzębia Góra cliff allows tourists to observe unique sunsets and take a walk in a place strongly saturated with healing sea aerosols. The name probably refers to the characteristic, sharp-cut and steep cliffs, on which birds of prey (Jastrzębia Góra means "falcon mountain" in Polish) often rest and nest. These birds of prey can be seen from the top of the cliffs, especially during the breeding season. The view from the top of the cliff is breathtaking and definitely worth seeing. The best time to visit the cliffs is during the day, when the sun illuminates the multicolored rocks. In the evening, the cliffs are illuminated, which creates an even more magical atmosphere.
"Lisi Jar" Gorge
"Lisi Jar" Gorge is an integral part of the Coastal Landscape Park. It is a gorge that stretches a narrow strip from the mainland to the Baltic Sea. The bay reaches a depth of up to 50 meters. Walking through the gorge, you can observe magnificent, over a hundred-year-old beeches that grow on the slopes of the gorge, creating an amazing local microclimate. There is a premise that the gorge was once about 10 km long, but the destructive action of the sea has caused it to be only 350 m long today. In addition, legend has it that at the entrance to Lisi Jar, Count de Rosset created the first coastal tourist shelter in the country "Nad Lisim Jarem", and placed a monument near it commemorating the legend that Sigismund III Vasa landed in Lisi Jar after the unsuccessful expedition for the Swedish crown.

Inside the lighthouse there is an exhibition on the history of marine lighting. You can, among other things, admire the front light of the lighthouse including the electrical equipment. These devices remained in place after two major rebuilds of the lighthouse. The greatest transformation in the appearance of the lighthouse took place during the second modernization. It was raised by 8 meters by inserting a metal cylinder. The reason for the elevation was the nearby trees growing in the Rozewski Peninsula Nature Reserve, which obscured the light of the lighthouse. Other light sources were also installed on the tower. In addition to the lighthouse, other buildings making up the complex can also be visited, such as the barn, bakery, and machine room. The height of the lighthouse tower is 32.7 meters. However, considering the location of the lighthouse on a high escarpment, the light source is located at a height of over 83 m above sea level and can be seen from 26 nautical miles. Near the lighthouse, there are two monuments - Stefan Żeromski and a memory of the Polish army's takeover of Pomerania in 1920. The Lighthouse in Rozewie is located at ul. Leon Wzorek 1. The patron of the street is the lighthouse keeper who worked here in 1920-1939.
