Attraction details
Owner description: Completed in 2006, the attractive Beach Promenade has the feeling of a real resort and makes the Summer Capital's beaches inviting even in bad weather! Romantically winding down the beach, the promenade surprises you with is well-thought functionality, and playfulness that comes from the use of different materials and fountains.Thought-out lighting keeps the beach active even when the sun goes down, and the playing colours of the fountains are a sight in themselves in the darkness of the night.Come and enjoy real beach feeling!.

After the magical wonderland that is the fine old city of Riga, it was time to hit some countryside, taking the rather posh coach up the coastal road upto Parnu, into Estonia. I had expected to of seen something of the Baltic Sea, on the 2.5 hour journey, but it wasn`t to be, just a hell of alot of forest. The dismal grey overcast cloud meant the daylight was more like a perpetual dusk for several hours. On arrival in Parnu, the rain came but only in a half-hearted fashion, as if the weather gods themselves were bored of all this dullness. Found the abode for the 4 nights stay ok, a cosy pad, just a few stones throws away from the beach. I wondered why I couldn`t hear the sound of the waves of the Baltic, been so close. The next morning I was to find out why! The sea was frozen over?? I`ll be damned. Where the forming brine should of been there was a jumble of ice sheets, the only wet stuff was the water seeping out of the sand as it came away from the land. OOoo it was cold, blue I was, I had my big coat on but still cold. I realised what I thought was an odd sight, crows bobbing on the sea, were in fact crows walking their stuff on the ice sheet!
I did a shuffle along the promenade for an hour until I could bare the cold no more, when yesterdays order for a bit of sunshine was realised, it was quite a shock seeing this strange orb on the western horizon, parting the dark, dinghy cloud for a whole 2 hours, not very warm poor chap but boy the brightness was very dazzling and the blue sky just wonderful, thanks sungod.

Great beach (like many in Estonia) with loads of water- and beach- sports on offer, good kite surfing - not to mention the Elephant!! Nice, warm, shallow water in the summer.

This is the closest thing that you can get to beach in Estonia. It has all of the activities: beach volleyball, walkways, restaurants and children friendly shallow water. The Estonian summer is short, so you will always see people regardless of the temperature.

Estonia is a beautiful country. We had a short while at Parnu beach. It is an open beach with the water a long way out. Plenty of sand and play areas on the beach for children. I am glad I went ,as Estonia is a beautiful part of the world. I guess it is a little back to nature, which is to their credit. We do not always want high rise and huge bill boards. Enjoy the moment, I always think.
