Tip of Sõrve

The Sõrve peninsula ends in the tip of Sõrve - loved by nature enthusiasts and bird-watchers alike, the peninsula continues on in a number of islets that are part of the Irbe Strait and local legend.

According to this legend, these islets were created by Great Tõll; as the hero was chasing the Devil out of the country, he threw the stones after him. The heavier stones fell, but the lighter ones flew further out.

Did you know...?: The Sõrve peninsula was first mentioned in 1234, and to date has had only 1,600 inhabitants.
