Baltijas jūras Kurzemes rietumu piekrasti Latvijā sauc par dižjūru. No Jūrtakas sākuma – Latvijas–Lietuvas robežstaba – līdz Kolkasragam jūras krasts visbiežāk ir smilšains. Dižjūras posms ir vismazāk apdzīvotā piekrastes daļa Latvijā, tajā atrodas trešā lielākā Latvijas pilsēta – Liepāja. Starp Pāvilostu un Sārnati jūras krastā slejas stāvkrasti. Ciemi ir klusi un maz apdzīvoti, vairums iedzīvotāju šeit pavada tikai vasaras.
