Purekkari cape is the northernmost place of mainland Estonia.
The cape is 1.5 km long, covered with rocks and boulders, and located on the Pärispea Peninsula in Lahemaa National Park. There is a small island at the end of the cape, which can be reached only when the water level is low. Thorny Japanese rose bushes catch the eye during blooming and when the roses bear fruit in the autumn. In the autumn, you can also see many migratory birds.
Old military establishments and a camping site of the State Forest Management Centre are near the cape. The road to the parking lot is narrow and cannot be accessed with a large bus.
Leave the car in the parking lot and walk for about 1.5 km. High water may cause the cape to turn into three rocky islets and in this case, reaching the top of the cape with dry shoes is not possible.
