Keila Joa is a small village in the suburbs of Tallinn. Amazingly beautiful and wonderful place, I advise everyone to visit it in the summer!

A beautiful nature park with 6m waterfall. 3km nature path to walk or run. 25 min by car from Tallinn center. Two restaurants for lunch just close by.

While visiting Estonia, my wife and I were fortunate enough to take a small tour group from Tallinn into the countryside for a day. Our group of 7 plus driver made multiple stops from a former USSR missile base, to Baltic shoreline and here at Keila Waterfall. This was one of our favorite visits while in Estonia, it highlighted the country's interior beauty. The 2nd highest waterfall in Estonia, it pales in height comparison to North American waterfalls...but it's equally beautiful. Learning the region's geographical history and importance to Estonians, we loved our hour long visit exploring the falls.

This is not an impossible area to reach, but it will be much easier if you hire a guide to take you. There are several locations along the route from Tallin to Keila-Joa Alevik, we would recommend a stop here in conjunction with other historical points of significance. Estonia is a beautiful country with much promise ahead, a visit to Keila Waterfall highlights what is in the past and what is in the future.

... with delicious finish. First you walk over two bridges to reach a fantastic viewpoint of the waterfall and afterwards you walk along the river until you reach a sandy forest by the sea. Returning, you should not miss the little Café next to the waterfall which serves delicious food for very little money. Tri the pelmenid!

Our guide took us here and let us explore on our own. The bridge with the locks started to fall and the locks have been removed, but a lovely sculpture has been erected nearby to hold the removed locks and have new ones connected.

Granted, it is a beautiful waterfall, but it is also just an average waterfall in the country side. It is pretty much the main sight in Keila-Joa, so, if your tour group makes this a stopping point, then it is a good sight to take a selfie or two. Don’t hold too high an expectation though.

While staying in Laulasmaa, we had to have something else to do than stand up paddling. So we visited on Keila waterfall, which was really good idea. There is also small hiking trail to walk around to see nice views around the Keila river.
Waterfall itself is not so big but it is pretty and you can get nice pics around of it. There were many local wedding couples taking their wedding pics around the waterfall and bridges.
You can spend couple of hours in there but do not reserve the whole day. It is really worth of dropping by if you stay close enough.
