Site description (2004 baseline)
An area of coastal habitats (seashore, dunes, pine forest) with mosaic of wet forest and fen habitats, including significant occurrence of Erica tetralix and Myrica gale. First listed as an IBA in 1994 [1] but due to limited criteria application possibilities the site was not included in further inventories. The site now qualifies under the IBA C criteria. Almost fully protected: there is a 98.3% overlap with Ziemupe restricted nature reserve, a candidate SPA.
