TOP 5: beaches in Tallinn

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

By Noora Karppi  •  09.08.2018

Tallinn boasts five public swimming beaches perfect for fun under the sun.

Pirita Promenade is especially popular with its breathtaking views of the Old Town. Walk, bike or skate down the well-developed seaside pathways. A good and different way to spend your time in Tallinn is to sunbathe on the beach, swim, or sail along the calm waters of the beautiful coast of the city.

Pirita Beach

The longest, largest and most popular beach in Tallinn is without a doubt Pirita beach. Enjoy a day at the beach with locals, who come here to relax, play and swim on a sunny day. Jump into the clean and cooling water of the Baltic Sea, and count the cruise ships slipping in and out of Tallinn. The 2km-long Pirita beach has one of the best views of Old Town and all the necessities you could want on a lovely day at the beach.

Buses nr 1A, 6, 34A and 38 from Viru Keskus to Pirita.

Stroomi Beach

Sandy Stroomi beach in Northern Tallinn is popular among families with children. Stroomi swimming beach has plenty to entertain little ones of all ages, with trampolines, playgrounds, kiosks and barbecuing areas. The beach lies between the Baltic Sea and Stroomi Beach Park, itself a great place for barbeques or impromptu games of football.  If it gets too hot you can take shade, and maybe a nap, under the leafy trees. For fitness buffs there are volleyball and football courts, sporting and training facilities and the 2.5km-long Rocca al Mare promenade.

Bus nr 40 from Vabaduse Väljak (Freedom Square) to Supelranna.

Kakumäe Beach

Kakumäe Beach is smaller and quieter than other beaches in Tallinn as it is located a bit further away on the western end of Tallinn close to the residential area of Haabersti. Kakumäe is a perfect beach to go to with kids, as it has the purest and shallow water.  There are also playgrounds and ball courts on the beach.

Buses nr 21 and 41 from Balti Jaam (railway station) to Landi, and then walk about 1km.

Harku (Lake) Beach

Harku Beach is the only beach on the shores of a lake in Tallinn. It is 200m long and has warm and shallow water. If you are looking for an active day in the sun, visit Harku Beach. At Harku Beach you can play mini-golf, surf, and practice rowing.

Bus nr 43 from Balti Jaam (railway station) to Väike-Õismäe parkla.
Buses nr 16, 22, 36, 42 and 46 from Vabaduse väljak (Freedom Square) to Väike-Õismäe parkla.

Pikakari Beach

Pikakari Beach is the newcomer among the beaches in Tallinn. The beach is close to the Katariina Pier, at a former military-industrial zone. You'll experience the excitement as the water gets deep just by the shore and the waves, made by the big cruise ships passing by, hit the beach. 

Bus nr 59 from Balti Jaam (railway station) to Pikakari.
