View on map

Puhtulaid is a narrow peninsula — it measures just 500 m across. The southern part of the peninsula is mainly covered in pebbly coastal ridges whose broadleaf forests are home to many different species. The northern end is more sparse, with less forest cover and more reedy marsh and meadows. You will find around 60 separate species of trees and bushes here.

Puhtulaid is a place unique in the world because of the migratory Arctic birds who stop here — experienced birdwatchers have counted almost a million birds in one single day here!
Useful information: Puhtulaid's forests boast pine trees that are up to 360 years old.

Features and amenities
Getting there

Puhtulaid, with its broadleaf forests and picturesque beaches, is just 3 km south-east of the Port of Virtsu. It is an islet in name only — a road will lead you to what is today a peninsula across the former bay.

船旅はいいね

島から島に向かうバスの乗車券を買うと、自動的にフェリーの切符代も込になるのが便利。フェリーの中に食堂もあり人気があるようでしたが、おなかがいっぱいで注文はできなかった。

ムフ島へのフェリー乗場がある

ムフ島へのフェリー乗場がある場所です。タリン、タルトゥ、パルヌなどからクレサーレに向かうバスは、ここのVirtsu Sadamのバス停経由でフェリーに乗って対岸に移動します。

Паромная переправа

Маленький полуостров - собственно гавань небольшого порта Virtsu sadam, откуда регулярно отправляются паромы на остров Muhu и далее по дамбе на главный остров Saaremaa. Ничего особо примечательного...
