Coastal meadows and reed thickets line the sandy Parnu Beach almost to the extent of the entire city. The Parnu Coastal Meadow Protection area was created in 1958 to protect endangered and rare plant species and communities, coastal meadows, creeks and moving dunes as valuable habitats.The coastal meadows in Vana-Parnu and Raekula districts are the most interesting. The dryer Vana-Parnu Meadow has been maintained and cut for decades. A bird-watching tower and a small hiking trail were built here in 2008.Come and enjoy pure nature in the midst of the city!

Easy to find - only ten miniutes walk from city center, before the beach. The wooden path is quite short, but you can see beauty of nature here.

A range of walks are available through this very peaceful reserve on the edge of Parnu. The obvious attraction is the very short (~10 minute) wooden boardwalk and watchtower at the southeastern end of Parnu beach, with good information boards which makes for a nice diversion on a beach-day. Longer walking routes are possible using the hiking/cycling path that runs... More
