Palanga’s restaurants and cafés provide sustenance for the stomach as well as endless opportunities to meet like-minded people out for a good time. Not exactly a culinary oasis, the food that gets served in the town is at least varied, if not mouth-watering. The town’s nightlife options are considerable, although many new places remain a secret until well after this guide has gone to press. Clubs tend to fall into the loud and sweaty category and are generally there for forgetting about life’s complexities and just having a ball. An experience not to be missed when in town is to clamber over the dunes and find one of the bars on the beach, where, if the weather’s being kind, it’s possible to drink until sunrise.
