You can reach Hel by various means of transport.
First, you can take a bus from Gdynia or Wladyslawowo. There are a few firms operating there so the buses are frequent and you can see more places along the peninsula by hopping on and off. The road borders on the Pucka Bay at places so you get great views on a clear day.
Secondly, you can take a train from Gdynia - in the summer there is a through train from Warsaw. Trains are infrequent so don't get off before your destination to see the villages unless you choose to continue your journey by bus. The trains have one great advantage over buses though: they don't get stuck in traffic jams, which can be horrendous on the peninsula in the summer months.
And finally, you can take one of the passenger boats from Gdansk or Sopot and go on a round or one-way cruise to Hel. These cruises, however, run only in the high season. For more details and address of their website, see my Things to Do tip.
