Tropical Beach in Warsaw

It boasts 600 metric tons of golden sand, palms, wooden piers, wicker furniture and comfortable hammocks. Port Wisła, a new recreational center that opened May 7 on the western bank of the Vistula River, is as close to a tropical beach as you are ever likely to see in Warsaw.

Combining sports, culture and education, Port Wisła is a place where entire families can swim in a pool, work out, climb walls, and rent a motor boat, a jet ski or a bike. It also has a children’s playground, a badminton court and soccer and beach ball pitches. There are also live performances, music from DJs and other cultural events on offer.

The idea behind Port Wisła is to encourage Varsovians to go out and pursue active forms of relaxation while having fun. Along with sports and recreational facilities, Port Wisła has activities designed for people of different ages, ranging from classes in first aid to ecology workshops to literary meetings.

On weekends, adults can attend a mobility and health academy, while children can enjoy a class called Open Air Kids. In a nod to the long tradition of pleasure boat trips on the Vistula River, the popular Warsaw Water Tramway now has a stop at Port Wisła.

Port Wisła is located on Solec Street between the Poniatowskiego and Łazienkowski bridges on the western Vistula River bank. It is open daily in the summer season, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m.-midnight on weekends.
