The town of Ustka is a health resort located in Central Pomerania, situated within the coastal zone, and serving tourism, agricultural and forest functions in this region of Poland. Spatial development resulting from the immediate vicinity of the sea and related environmental conditions is visible within the space, which is the subject of the present analysis. The fragment of the coastal zone, which functions as the main area of recreation and leisure within the town of Ustka, has been examined. The article presents the analysis of the particular features typifying the local development of the eastern part of the Baltic coast belt in the town of Ustka, as well as its general evaluation, and indication of the possibilities for tourism adaptation of one of the spaces within this area of the discussed town. In addition, one of the goals of the present work is to draw attention to the landscape-related legal problem of unfinished construction projects, particularly troublesome in places that suffer from the deficit of spaces dedicated to leisure activity. A classic example is the ruin of a hotel in Ustka town, discussed in the present article.
