Nõva has untouched pine forests with seemingly endless supply of delicious berries and mushrooms and beautiful, perfectly clean beach which is well known for its singing sands. Around Paraküla you can find about 15 small and shallow lakes surrounded by 5m high dunes.
Swedes inhabited the coast for hundreds of years so the area is full of Swedish history.
Nõva’s church (St Olaf's ) is the oldest and also smallest surviving wooden church in Estonia (built in the 17th century). The most interesting elements of the interior are the wooden benches, with different designs for men and women
Nõva lies on the territory of three nature reserve areas: Nõva landscape reserve area, Läänemaa Suursoo "Westland's Big Swamp" landscape reserve area and Leidissoo nature reserve area. The wildlife (birds and animals) in the forests of Nõva is impressive!
Nõva will appeal to lovers of untouched nature but also to people interested in Swedish-Estonian history.
You could easily spend a relaxing day in Nõva. Nõva makes an excellent stopping point on a coastal tour.
