The famous sandy Pärnu beach, which feels like a town within a town in summer, is just a 15-minute walk from the centre. Tens of thousands of sun-worshippers and swimmers visit the beach every day in summer. The beach is particularly well suited to families with children, as the water is shallow and warms up quickly in the sun, while the adjacent park offers protection from cool northern winds. The beach has fun attractions for kids, as well as swings, surfing equipment rental, mini golf and lots of ice cream and other refreshments. Romantics will love the beach promenade whatever the time of year.
