Beaches of the Rostock baltic sea coast

Mecklenburg’s Baltic Sea coastline at the Rostock region is especially known for its beautiful beaches. The water quality is checked regularly and is generally rated as either good or very good at all locations – between Warnemünde and Diedrichshagen, the Höhe Düne district and Markgrafenheide. This is why our beaches have been awarded the “Blue Flag” certification of quality. Enjoy our white sandy beaches, shallow waters, cliffs and coastal forest!
