If watching flowers, birds or mushrooms is limited by the season, the limestone bluffs and terraces offer a picturesque sight all the year round. The layers of fossils can tell interesting stories about history and the crust uplift. Did you know that the youngest island of Estonia, Uus-Nootamaa is located in the western part of Saaremaa?

 

Saaremaa is also rich in different types of bluffs, some of them are like big vertical walls, others rise towards the land by terraces or descend directly into the sea and are influenced by waves. There are even some old bluffs that are located inland. The highest bluff is Panga or Mustjala bluff with its 21.3 meters. When in Muhu, you should visit the interesting Üügu bluff and just let the stunning view speak for itself. At the seaside, you can find stones that have captured animals and plants from millions of years ago.
