Ückeritz. Ückeritz is one of the best kept secrets on Usedom. Its 7 1/2 mile long beach is quite busy in the north but almost abandoned further south. The area is quite rustic and the perfect beach to feel like you have the place to yourself. Amenities: food and drink; parking Best for: solitude; nudists; sunrise; sunset; walking. Uferpromenade, Ückeritz, 17459.
Kaiserbäder. The Kaiserbäder Strand stretches for more than 12 km (7 miles) along Usedom Island's northeast coast from Bansin to Herringsdorf to Ahlbeck. A promenade connects the three towns and the Imperial Bathing Beaches are a mix of 19th-century beach architecture on one side and beach chair relaxation on the other. A stroll through the windy sea air is said to have magical recuperative powers and the beach is so pure and pristine that the locals claim that when the conditions are right, the sand actually sings when the grains rub together. The wide beach bustles with weekend Berliners and long-term visitors in summer. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; sunrise; sunset; swimming; walking. Strandpromenade, Herringsdorf, 17424.
