Sorgu is a tiny rocky island between Pärnu and Riga. Its surface area is only five hectares (12 acres). It is a natural rockery and a paradise for seabirds. You can reach the shore by boat only from the northern tip of the island, which is a high plateau rising from the sea to the lighthouse. In order to protect migratory birds, it is prohibited to visit the island between 15th April and 1st July.
Interesting to know: Iron stones from the island can be found in Pärnu in old cobblestone pavements and piers. It is necessary to ask permission to visit the island from the Pärnu County Environmental Services. But it is, for example, a wonderful canoeing destination.
