View on map

The Käsmu nature and cultural history trail looks at the development of the Käsmu peninsula and Estonia’s biggest natural accumulation of rocks. Beginning in the car park next to the chapel, the trail is well marked with signs and is 4.2 km long; trees along the trail have white stripes painted on their trunks for guidance.

Käsmu itself is one of Estonia's most beautiful seaside villages, and the local museum provides an excellent overview of its maritime history.
