cliff in Orłowo
Length >>> about 1 km one way, behind the pier you can swim in a zigzag between the boulders, so the trip in both directions can be over 2 km.
Estimated time of the route >>> depending on the skill level, we assume that this is a route for an intermediate person, so it will take about 1.5 hours of paddling with a short rest by the cliff.
Difficulty level >>> due to its length, the route is at least for intermediate (especially if there is a wind and a wave). Behind the pier there are a lot of stones and boulders, especially along the shore by the cliff. On the right side after the pier, you will find a long strip of large boulders marked with black flags. We advise against swimming in that area due to the risk of falling on their sharp edges.
