Other Site Characteristics

Site includes different coastal habitats and dry and wet pine-dominated forests. Often small fens and Myrica gale stands are found. Small natural rivers flow through the site. D - Red Data book

4.2 Quality and importance

Main qualifying features are Embryonic shifting dunes (2110), White dunes (2120), Grey dunes (2130*), Decalcified fixed dunes with Empetrum nigrum (2140*), Wooded dunes of the Atlantic, Continental and Boreal region (2180). Qualifying species are Dianthus arenarius arenarius, Linaria loeselii and Lutra lutra. One of few sites where white dunes (2120) with Eryngium maritimum and Decalcified fixed dunes with Empetrum nigrum (2140) is found in Latvia. One of the best grey dune examples in Latvia. Site hosts a large number of nationally rare and protected plant and animal species. Nationally rare forest type "grinis" are found there.
