The port of Jurmala is situated in the estuary of the Lielupe, located in the very southern end of the gulf of Riga. Historically it was formed in the territory of the port of the former fisherman kolkhoz.
Deepening of the fairway of the port of Jurmala was regularly performed until 2002 – until the moment when A/S “Juraslicis” existed (in the time period from 1947 until 1994 fisherman kolkhoz “Uzvara”). Deepening had been performed by the company itself to ensure the possibility to enter the sea for fishing purposes. When the company ceased its activities in 2002, the fairway to the port was no longer deepened. Since 2010 deepening of the port fiarway has been done with the financing of Jūrmala city Council.
Technical potential of the port of Jurmala is characterized by the following indicators:
- width of the internal channel bottom – 40 m;
- total area of the port territory – 442 ha (including 102 ha of land and 320 ha of the port water area with the internal and external raids and boat paths at the entrance to the port)
Both water and land territories of the port of Jurmala are available for rent. With regard to the berths rent there is an option to berth the navigation vessels and receive the services of procurement and waste collection.
There are two access ways to the yacht berths in the territory of the port of Jurmala – the waterway from the Daugava down the Bullupi and the waterway down the Lielupe estuary to the gulf of Riga. The water way down the Bullupi is crossed by the bridge in Bolderaja and a high-voltage line, therefore the only waterway for the entrance of the sailing yachts to the port of Jurmala is the Lielupe estuary to the gulf of Riga.
The territory of the city of Jūrmala is crossed by the state main motorway E22/A10 “Riga-Ventspils”, state regional motorway P128 “Sloka-Talsi” and state motorway V10 “Babite station – Varnukrogs”.
