Saaremaa has always attracted its guests with our wildlife, history and friendly people. Add some beautiful sandy beaches and joyful culture events for a truly memorable holiday. The top 6 Saaremaa attractions throughout the years have been:

 

  • Kuressaare bishopric castle-fortification, telling a colourful story of the past of Saaremaa with its rooms full of history. Today the castle houses the Saaremaa Museum.
  • Kaali meteorite crater, demonstrating the power and unpredictability of the nature. The approximate time of Kaali meteorite fall is 7500-7600 years ago. Meteorite fall caused big damages on already inhabited Saaremaa, it could be compared to explosion of atomic bomb.
  • Angla windmill hill and heritage culture centre, teaching us about ancient traditions and way of life. Four out of the five windmills on Angla Windmill mount are typical trestle windmills characteristic of the island of Saaremaa. A slightly taller windmill is Dutch-style windmill. At Angla heritage cultural centre you can take part of number of workshops - trying your hand at pottery, felting, bread-making and more.
  • Panga bluff, painting a picture of the Ice Age, crust uplift and ancient plant and insect fossils. Panga cliff is the highest bedrock outcrop in western Estonia and its islands.
  • Vilsandi National Park, allowing us to admire the beauty of wildlife in orchids, flocks of migrating birds and lighthouses. Vilsandi is the oldest nature protection area in the Baltics, founded as a bird reserve in 1910.

From the sweltering sauna steam room straight into an invigorating pond – this is a must! In spring 2016, we built a smoke sauna. In 2019, we added a barrel sauna. In 2020, we also built a sauna complex with a steam room. We recommend trying all three out! If you would like to enjoy a Saaremaa smoke sauna, then call ahead, because it takes six hours to heat the smoke sauna! The heated sauna is yours to use for the entire evening. The sauna-goers can prepare the food they have taken along on the sauna's barbecue. Heating the barrel and steam sauna takes less time!

In 2012, a unique fishing museum was opened in the fishnet shed at the Port of Koguva. All the exhibits are from the farms in the Koguva village, especially from the Tõnise farm, whose owner refused to join a collective farm and kept the doors of his barns locked, so that the property was not taken to a collective farm. The unique interior of the fishnet shed also offers the opportunity to enjoy the menu of the café at the Port of Koguva.
