Birdwatching towers in Paljassaare Special Conservation Area

Paljassaare Special Conservation Area is a special protection area of pan-European importance; 227 bird species have been registered here, 82 of whom are under protection in Estonia.

Both the Reedbed Tower and the White Tower offer a magnificent view of the reedbed, meadows, shrubs, and the sea. With binoculars, you can see seagulls, various ducks, oystercatchers, and even western marsh harriers. 

You cannot camp or make a fire in the area. The neighbouring Pikakari beach is popular among people coming from Tallinn.
