One can indulge in swimming, bird watching, kite surfing or just gazing at the sunset. On the other shore is a popular touristic attraction Nida where one can dip into the Baltic sea or explore huge natural sand formations - dunes.
Kintai history starts in the 16th century. This peace of land was part of Eastern Prussia, became Lithuanian and then occupied by the Soviet Union. A complex history of the region can be explored in the local museum primarily dedicated to a famous Lithuanian figure Vydūnas.
