Sääretirp

KASSARI MAASTIKUKAITSEALA 31, Kassari küla, Hiiumaa vald, Hiiu maakond

View on map

This unusual name marks the location of a unique headland. You know you are close to the destination if you see the statue of Leigri, a hero of Hiiu County.
The esker runs from north-east to south-west. Its higher parts are covered with vegetation but become a beach full of pebbles. Unique trees and shrubs grow here: honeysuckle, alder buckthorn, buckthorn, and snowball tree. There is an abundance of sea kale on the shores, which make the beach an amazing sight during the flowering period. Not to mention the marvellous brier flowers. Kassari is a popular place for summer holidays: for example, the writer Aino Kallas and the linguist-diplomat Oskar Kallas have stayed here.

For the nature lovers great walk

After a long drive, we decided to have a walk and spotted the sign "Tirp". As I heard about it, we decided to go there. It was a great walk in the wild nature. The sound of the sea, quite different...

One of the most amazing places I've ever been

We left the bike on the parking area. The rain had enden few hours earlier and the sun was starting to shine. We started to walk to the end of the cape. The cape was getting more narrow all the time...

Promenade facile mais pas vraiment de chouettes plages. Par contre, il n'y a pas du tout d'ombre. Un petit chemin permet de voir l'eau des 2 côtés.
