This turtle shows up in half of the postcards of Jurmala. Kids love it. If you are walking along the beach up to the hotel, you will find it.

Not sure how this can get so many 5 ratings. Yes nice enough but even smaller kids will get bored after a couple of minutes. Best bit is that 10m from the lovely beach and 40m from the Bay of Riga which is so nice to swim in

A cute big turtle. The kids took one look at it and ran to the beach. If it is on your way, cool. Otherwise,don't plan your trip around it.

Find this and play Pokemon Go! =) Not too much to see, but it is quite nice and big. Not worth to walk long distance because of this.

This turtle is practically a must-see by now, he is that famous in Jurmala. I'm not sure why, but he is. Still, a fun sculpture, especially for kids.

It's a big bronze turtle, thats it. Have a look at the pictures and save the effort it's just not worth it.
