Suurupi upper lighthouse

The oldest working lighthouse in mainland Estonia is open for visitors!
The cylinder-shaped limestone lighthouse was built in 1760 to make it possible for ships to find shelter from storms between Naissaar Island and Suurupi.
The lighthouse is 22 metres tall and the balcony, which is 63 meters above sea level, offers a wonderful view of Tallinn and Lohusalu Bay.
The lighthouse is surrounded by a campus with a wall and buildings from the 19th century.
Suurupi lighthouses and campuses are under state protection as cultural heritage.
Together, the lighthouses show the way to the ports in Tallinn.
