Estonia, a secret well kept on the coast of Baltic Sea, is much closer and accessible than you think. Its winding coastline is by far more lengthy than its land border, surrounded by roughly 2000 islands. Vibrant atmosphere packed with many regattas, Estonia is a place well worth exploring by boat.
Estonia has smaller and bigger yacht marinas to choose from located across the coastline and islands. In a matter of days, or in some cases hours, you can reach Estonian ports and marinas from neighbouring countries such as Finland and Sweden. By the shortest route from northern coast across the Gulf of Finland to Finland is just 25 nautical miles.
Three ways to enjoy coastal Estonia's sailing, cuisine and nature.
In Estonia, the officials are generally English-speaking, the currency is the euro, and regulations are fairly loose, so no worries!
There are more than 2000 small islands and islets in Estonia’s waters, most of them on the western coast and Väinameri (Belt Sea).
These islands are quiet places for hiking, camping and enjoying seafood delicacies this summer.
