The lighthouse at the northern part of the Juminda Peninsula on the northern coast helps ships navigate.
The lighthouse was built in 1937 and obtained its today's height and shape in 2006.
During the Soviet era a rocket base under the strict surveillance of border guard was located on the peninsula. 
In August 1941 a naval battle with the highest victim count was held at the end of the creek of the Juminda Peninsula. Juminda Peninsula has also been mentioned on several occasions in the stories of the Estonian national epic Kalevipoeg (Son of Kalev).

The lighthouse can only be viewed from afar. But the history of the peninsula is so fascinating that you'll find a day's worth of exploring there!
