The Pärnu coastal nature reserve covers 341 hectares of woods, lagoons, and coastal meadows. This is also a pasture for cattle or city cows, as well as a favourite nesting place for birds and amphibians.
A 600 m hiking trail with a viewing platform, which stands right by the sea in the middle of the Pärnu beach, was constructed for visitors to be able to explore the unique ecosystem of the city. The visitors can walk above the backwaters and look for unique protected plants. The trail that rises gradually is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs for everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
