If you take a walk or bike from Salacgrīva to Kuiviži, it’s worth it to stop and take a look at the Salacgrīva Fishermen’s park where for several years already the loved festival Positivus takes place. If you choose to go further to Kuiviži, go ahead, but if the strong sea wind bites too much, go back in the leeside, where the bikeway will lead you to the recreation complex ‘’Kapteiņu osta’’.
In the ‘’Il Capitano’’ restaurant you can enjoy tasty lunch or warm yourself with a cup of herbal tea. In the Kuiviži port you can watch fishermen in action, going in the sea for the catch or taking it to the shore. From the pier you can see the little wharf of Kuiviži port. If the wind has calmed down, you can go back to Salacgrīva along the beach. You’ll be positively charged when you get back to Salacgrīva, because the fresh air, scent of the pines and rustle of the sea is the power of the nature we have in abundance.
The proud gringos have named it the Positivus venue. When the grass is not trempeld by 35 000 music lovers, this is a great place for active recreation. Whether it's winter, when you can come here to ski and skate, or summer when you can come here for a run, play soccer, tennis, basketball, organize a competition for cone-target-throwing or build sand castles, the area of 13.5 hectares is the right place to feel free!
3 km north of Salacgrīva the harbor of Kuiviži is located. The making of Kuiviži harbor is a special story – in 1860, longing for their own harbor, some 60 local fishermen deepened the mouth of Krišupīte river only using showels, thereby creating the aquatorium of Kuiviži harbor...
If you want a peaceful and smooth walk, then you'll find this on the Kuivizu beach.
It is a rare phenomenon when all eyes on the place where the animals like to congregate. When such magnificent creatures as swans for their place of residence choose the beach accessible to all, we just have to be happy that it is so cool here that even swans like to linger. Here, where the beach is rocky and with appropriate depth, they have the best lunch offer!
The lighthouse of Salacgrīva is located on the right bank of the river Salaca - it is a quadrangular white tower with a red lantern and it was built in 1925. Today the lighthouse does not operate anymore - following this lighthose, all fishermen have already found their way home and the story has ended happily. The lighthouse was built, because due to the numerous sandbanks the coast between Salacgrīva and Ainaži was considered to be the most dangerous area for sailing in the whole Gulf of Riga.
