The earliest written records of a village in Käsmu date from 1453. It was home to a maritime school, and virtually every family had its captain or coxswain. That is why Käsmu was known as the “captains’ village”.
Today it is popular place for summer holidays and hosting events. You can rest and relax here strolling along the beach, exploring the natural beauty of the area on its hiking trails, enjoying the events put on here and visiting the Käsmu maritime museum.
