Kolkasrags (Cape Kolka)
Kolka is the farthest North point of Kurzeme peninsula and Kolkasrags (Cape Kolka) is the most pronounced land horn at the coast line of Latvia. This is the place where the meeting of the waves of two seas, i.e. the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Riga, can be seen. The horn extends as a shallow under water for 6 km. At the end of the shallow, on an artificial island there is Kolka lighthouse. The sea around Kolkasrags is the place of loss of numerous ships.

The name of Kolkasrags (Domesnes) can be first seen recorded (1040) engraved in Mērvala rune stone in Sweden.

There is a unique opportunity to sea both sunrise and sunset in the sea at the same place. During the spring migration this is an important collection and rest point for migrating birds passing by.
