European Best Destination – has created a list of the safest beaches in terms of the risk of coronavirus infection. Third place on the list was taken by a beach on the Hel Peninsula. Only the beaches in Portugal and Greece were safer. The list was created based on many criteria. When it was created, the number of people infected with coronavirus across the country, the size of the beaches and the number of square meters available to each person were taken into account. They were also chosen in terms of the number of beds that guarantee hygiene and safety measures and ensure social distancing, such as apartments, private villas, small and medium-sized hotels. The proximity of hospitals and the number of places in them were also significant. The creators of the rating decided that one of the beaches that deserves special attention is the one on the Hel Peninsula. The organization recognized that Poland is one of the countries least affected by the pandemic. It was noted that hospitals are not overcrowded and that the number of hospital beds per capita is higher than in many other European countries, such as the Netherlands or Switzerland.
Despite its name (called “means hell”), it is recognized as the best European “heaven on earth”. The length and width of the beach were appreciated, the creators of the list also emphasize that this is an ideal place for both lazy lovers and active people. They recommend renting a bike and visiting the peninsula. For the more experienced, they offer a bike ride from Swinoujscie. The authors of the list ridiculed the name of the peninsula. Imagine when you are asked where you will go on vacation this summer? and you will answer in “Hel” (hell). Imagine what the reaction will be after that. The winner of the rating was a beach in the Greek city of Preveza. Greece is one of the countries where the coronavirus hit the least and will start receiving the first foreign tourists from June 15. Second place went to Comporta Beach in Alentejo, Portugal.
