Practical information - how to get there, how much does it cost and where to stay
How to get there? The easiest is to take a ferry from Estonian mainland, for two adults and the car it costs 18.60 eur one way. I heard there is a plan to open ferry connection from Riga, so I hope it happens soon!
How to choose where to stay? For us it was important to have a modern hotel with parking, good spa and breakfast. As we celebrated our 14 years together anniversary, we wanted something special, so we booked the Romantic Package in Georg Ots Spa Hotel. In winter on a weeknight it costs 399 euros for two nights with couples treatments, one 50 euro dinner included and breakfast in bed! There are many different hotels, guest houses and camping spots on the island, so there is something for everyone!
Day 1: Dining in Retro
As it was already dark when we exited the ferry, our only order of business for that evening was getting a nice dinner. For that we stopped in a lovely cafe in the city center, Retro. Already at the entrance I saw something that reminded me of my childhood, the famous ice cream displays from Penguin cafe! I used to have one of those just next to my house and it was the biggest treat. The TV was on and the cute Czech cartoon "Štaflík a Špagetka" was playing, and a welcoming waiter brought us the menu and house lemonade. I felt just at home in my gray sweater with kitties here!
