Stay In Tallinn Apartments

“Wow – best Tallinn apartment I have stayed in. High quality throughout, loads of space and great location. Being in Pikk street was perfect for the shops, restaurants and going out in the evening. Didn’t even need to use a taxi once. Will stay here again next time I visit Tallinn.” – Marc Mutton

Tallinn accommodation bedroom

“The accommodation in Tallinn was perfect. Just what we were looking for and you were right when you said it is in the best location! To step out of our front door and be right in the heart of the old town was wonderful. Plus I was very impressed with the apartment. You have obviously put a lot of effort and thought into making this a beautiful place to stay. Thank you so much. We had a fantastic time.” – Petra Peters

Tallinn Apartment Accommodation

“Best Tallinn accommodation I’ve stayed in, out of my 5 trips there. The apartment is huge and they’ve done a top rate refurbishment job, plus of course you can’t beat the location in the centre of the old town. When I called their UK phone number to book, the woman spoke fluent English, was very helpful and able to answer all my questions. Then when I arrived in Tallinn I was met at the apartment and given the keys by a very helpful woman who gave me some great ideas of where to go out. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. On previously visits to Tallinn, I’ve stayed in a great apartment in a noisy location in the old town, a not very nice apartment in a great location, and had all kinds of fun trying to be understood by the apartment owners, so it was a relief to finally get it right and find a great apartment in a great location, with someone who I could actually talk with properly! I highly recommend this place and just wish I had found it on my first visit!” – William Jacobs

Tallinn Beaches Guide

Tallinn has five public swimming beaches (Pirita, Stroomi, Harku, Kakumäe and Pikakari) all a relatively short distance from the city. Although you can get to all of these beaches using public transport, if the weather is good you may prefer to get a bit of excerise on the way and get to the beaches by bicycle or roller-blades using the city’s network of paths. Lifeguards are working on all the main Tallinn beaches (weekdays 9am–8pm, and weekends, 9am–9pm). Beach facilities include changing rooms, toilets and guarded parking areas. As you would expect at the beach, you can buy from mobile cream vendors.

Pirita Beach
Only twenty minutes away from Tallinn Old Town accommodation, is the most popular and largest, 2-km-long Pirita beach. Its a great beach that even has a backdrop of palm trees! Locals and tourists flock to Pirita for sunbathing, volleyball and swimming. For those even more active, you can do a variety of watersports, including windsurfing. There are shops selling beach gear and cafés providing refreshments. Music is played on the beach and there are frequent competitions and other events. At the far side of the beach there is a separate area for nude sunbathing.

The is a fantastic view of the Tallinn old town, with the beach is separated from the neighboring Pirita and Merivälja residential districts by a pine forest. You can reach Pirita from the Old Town by buses 1, 1A, 8, 34, or 38, or alternatively grab a taxi.

Stroomi Beach
Another popular spot is Stroomi beach, situated in Pelguranna, opposite the Open Air Museum on the other side of Kopli Bay. Between the beach and highrise residential buildings is a spacious green area where beachgoers can find shade on the grass for a picnic. Courts for various ballgames, trampolines and outdoor cafés can all be found on this beach. There are all kinds of distractions for the kids, with playgrounds and even little electric cars they can drive! A temporary youth center is set up, concerts are frequently organised, and there is always loud disco music playing. The beach house provides lockers and showers, and a shop for buying beach gear and borrowing chaise longues. The beach is 4 km from downtown Tallinn (buses 3, 40, 48).

Harku Beach
On the western city border in the Haabersti district, Harku beach lies on the shores of a lake, so it has slightly warmer water for swimming than the sea. The swimming beach on a sandy stretch of shore is fairly treeless and lies close to a residential area. The lake shore is shallow and the bottom is muddy, 12 meters at its deepest. The beach has courts for ballgames, climbing trees for children, a kiosk selling food, and showers. The rowing base nearby provides an opportunity to practice rowing and surfing, play mini golf, use the gym and rent pedalos and rowboats.

Kakumäe Beach
Kakumäe beach is also in Haabersti, on the landward side of the small Kakumäe peninsula. The peninsula is full of single-family houses, at a bit of a distance from the swimming beach. This quiet, secluded beach has ball courts, a kiosk selling food, showers and a bicycle parking lot. Children can use the swings and a climbing tree. The beach is 11 km from downtown Tallinn and is not very busy. Buses 21 and 21B go from the central railway station (Balti jaam) to Kakumäe. From Kakumäe Road, which follows the length of the peninsula, turn onto Sooranna Street to take you straight to the beach.

Pikakari Beach
Tallinn’s newest beach, Pikakari beach, is located on Paljassaare peninsula, near Katariina pier. This area was a military zone with very restricted access until only a few years ago. As a result, there is not much charm but with continued development things are starting to come together. A small wooded area gives some protection against landward winds. The sea floor is partly sandy, partly rocky, and the water gets deep quickly, reaching over a person’s head 30 meters away from land. The beach has courts for ballgames, places for making fires, swings for children and a kiosk selling food. Park rangers patrol the area, and you’re likely to meet surfers and fishermen. There is also a bird protection area and bird viewing tower on the peninsula. The beach is 6 km from downtown Tallinn. To get there, drive to the end of Paljassaare Road (bus 59 from the central railway station, or Balti jaam) and walk further down a gravel road about 300 meters. The view back onto town and onto the sea from the beach and the pier are well worth the trouble, especially on a summer’s evening.

The Estonian coastline has many deserted beaches, small fishing villages and holiday resorts. From sleepy fishing villages, to unspoilt beaches, spa resorts, yacht marinas and larger ports there is something for everyone. Why not take a trip along Estonia’s coast starting at Narva in the north and heading towards Tallinn and then down the west coast to Pärnu, Estonia’s summer capital would make a fantastic trip.

NARVA JÕESUU RESORT

NARVA-JÕESUU Resort
On the coast of the Gulf of Finland, only 12 kilometres from Narva is the small and cosy resort town Narva-Jõesuu, which has been for ages one of the most beautiful places for summer holidays in Estonia. People came here from St. Petersburg, Moscow, the Crimea and the Caucasus.

A great climate, pine woods, long stretches of beach with fine-grained golden sand extending for 13 kilometres, the cool and clean water of the Baltic Sea – all of this makes Narva-Jõesuu very attractive to visitors.

Laulasmaa
Laulasmaa sits on the Lahepere Bay on a beautiful sandy beach, just half an hour’s drive from Tallinn. It got its name from the singing sands on the Laulasmaa beach (“laulev maa” – the land that sings). Laulasmaa has been a well-known holiday place since the 1930s.

Laulasmaa beach is a perfect swimming place. Families love its sandy sea bottom and warmer than average water. The beach is also appreciated by local windsurfers. In Lohusalu Bay lies the wreck of the passenger ship “Josef Stalin,” which is a well-known diving spot.

Viimsi
Jutting out from the coast just 15km north of Tallinn’s city centre, the rocky Viimsi peninsula is both a nature-lovers’ getaway and a worthy destination for history buffs. Highlights here include the Estonian War Museum, the Museum of Coastal Folk and the seaside Viimsi Open-Air Museum, built around a historic farm. Just next to the Open-Air Museum stands one of Estonia’s oddest-looking restaurants, Paat, which is shaped like a giantic, overturned boat.

Paldiski
This coastal town 45km from Tallinn is best known as a destination for history buffs – it was a highly restricted submarine and rocket base during Soviet times, and after the Russian military left in 1994 much of it fell to ruins. But apart from being covered in crumbling barracks, the Pakri peninsula on which Paldiski sits is also worth visiting for its striking limestone cliffs and is home to some rare wildlife.

Türisalu Cliff Tallinn Estonia

Tallinn-Paldiski journey
Taking the scenic, coastal route to Paldiski can be just as rewarding as seeing the town itself. Your first stop should be the Türisalu cliff. Toweringup to 31 metres, it’s one of the most impressive limestone cliffs in the country. From here you’ll get a good view of Naissaar island and nearby Vääna-Jõesuu, a beautiful sandy seashore.

Vääna-Jõesuu is a village in Harku Parish, Harju County in northern Estonia. It has a population of 686 (as of 1 June 2010).

Farther along is Keila-Joa, where you can see the third highest waterfall in the country and a 19th-century, Neo-Gothic manor house. On the coast nearby is Laulasmaa, a beach area named after “singing sands.” It’s a perfect place for swimming in summer, not to mention walking and jogging.
