Tuhkana beach, in Northern Saaremaa, is one of the best places for swimming in Saaremaa. With a sandy shore 500 metres wide - the beach is unlike others in South Saaremaa in that you don't have to walk far to reach its deep waters.
With the beaches' roaring waves - made more powerful with the strong north wind, or the beaches' volleyball court, there is something for everyone.
A boardwalk, from the parking lot to the beach, running through the neighbouring pine forest is a good chance for a walk; and the beaches other surrounding forests give visitors the opportunity to pick mushrooms and berries before taking a break at the RMK recreation area's picnic table, information stand and outhouse.
