Kitesurfing and swimming at Vasikaholm beach

Vasikaholm beach is Haapsalu’s second official bathing beach after Paralepa. There are changing cabins on the beach but no toilets.  Water quality and cleanliness is inspected twice a month. The official bathing season lasts from 1 June to 31 August. In addition to the beach being open for swimming, there are also special attractions in the water which are designed for kitesurfers.

Did you know...?
*Pay attention to the colour of the flags on the beach: green means swimming is safe and the water is warmer than 18ºC; yellow means the conditions are dangerous for children and the elderly; and red means conditions are dangerous to all, with the water temperature below 16ºC.
