    We visit it almost every time while in Kuressaare. Beautiful and calm place. Inside there is a museum or even two: one part of exhibition is devoted to nature, another to history of the state. Some stairs are a bit challenging for small kids.

    Very interesting museum with exhibits explaining Estonian history. The view from the tower and other areas was impressive.

    Beautiful lighhouse with amazing view from the top. The climb is quite high and a bit exhausting, but well worth it! The nearby peninsula is beautiful and worth walking. You can even find some fossils from the beach. A couple of restaurants next to the lighthouse as well.

    The crater is impressive and there is good information available on its history. Parking is nearby, and there’s also a food store if you need one.

    You can see the Baltic see on the right side of the peninsula and the Riga bay on the left side. Coffee shop and a fish restaurant next to it. Visit the lighthouse too. Cool visit

    A nice path leading to a perfect beach with a leaning lighthouse that one can easily reach by swimming. At the end there is a cape were the waves meet.

    We had a shortage of time therefore we chose renting the bicycles at the start of the trail. Both were with child seats. Beware that at one place the sand will stop you from riding the bike!

    General impression: could be one of the better experiences in Saarema.

    Nice spot for an evening stroll in Kurressare, and why not enjoy it with a mythical tale of the area.
    The sculpture depicts Suur Tõll , a mythical hero of the island Saaremaa, and his wife Piret.
    According to the Legend, Sõrve peninsula was important to Tõll, as from there he reached the shortest way to the island Ruhnu, where he had his cabbage field. When his wife Piret started to make a fire under the cauldron, then Tõll went through the sea to his cabbage field and came back in half an hour, so that he could hand Piret the cabbages when the water had just started to boil.

    Just one spot: take your swimming suites and picnic basket with you and spend nice hours here. Both for families and solo travellers.

    Saaremaa is not so plane, if you visit Viidumäe. Nice hiking trials, take "off" and picnic buscet with you!

    I visited Good Kaarma as part of a G Adventures tour I was traveling with. The owners have done a great job creating an inviting, warm environment that radiates with loving energy. The morning that we went to Good Kaarma to learn more about soap making, my stomach wasn't feeling well. Our tour guide told the owner and she immediately made me a hot drink with apple cider vinegar and within 30 minutes I felt like a new person. The soaps smell so good and are made with all natural ingredients. I would highly encourage making this a stop if you visit Saaremaa Island.

    The monument was built in the Soviet era to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Red Army. The inscription on the monument - to the "defenders and liberators" of Saaremaa - clearly reflects the political views of the Soviet side and is probably something that few Estonians these days would identify with.

    Yet for all that, stopping by the monument does give you an opportunity to think about the troubled past and perhaps reflect on the brutality of war that took place there not all that long ago. Even more so, all the politics aside, it is a very quiet, tranquil spot much like many other historic battlefields.

    We took the time to walk around the nearby beach and forest, which is absolutely stunning, with plenty of moss and mushrooms. The contrast between the beauty of nature and the man-made horrors of war makes this a very special place.

    The food in this restaurant is of a good quality and copious. We enjoyed 2 meals there. We also visited the windmill on several floors which is very interesting.
