Saaremaa harbour

Islands are a true treasure of Estonia. Saaremaa is the biggest amongst them. Located at the important seaways, Saaremaa has been familiar to seafarers from times immemorial.
The islands off the coast are virtual dreamlands, unlike anything in Europe. Most romantic landscape dotted with windmills, thatched cottages and sleepy fishing villages. Although small, Saaremaa offers various pleasant possibilities to try something untried, something exciting and magical. Kuressaare Castle and Lake Kaali, dolomite and curative mud, reed thatches and stone fences, windmills and medieval churches, junipers and coastline meadows, local bread and home-brewed beer are the first things coming into mind.
Saaremaa harbour is operated by Port of Tallinn. The harbour with the depth alongside the quay of 10 meters is capable of servicing ships with the length of up to 200 m. The natural depth of the harbour location is sufficient for receiving the biggest cruise ships sailing in the Baltic Se

Port attractions

  1.  Kuressaare Episcopal castle

    The very well preserved castle from the 14th century is a landmark for the town of Kuressaare and is the best-preserved medieval stronghold in the Baltics.
  2.  Kaali meteorite craters

    This geological marvel is the most easily accessible meteorite crater in the world. It has been a source of folk songs, fairy-tales and a place that Pytheas considered to be Ultima Thule.
  3.  Angla Windmill hill

    At one time, every village had a windmill hill. Angla represent the last surviving windmill hill on the island. It will leave a lasting impression.
  4.  Mihkli Farm museum

    A representation of a typical, self-sufficient western Saaremaa farm as they were in the l930s. Most of the buildings date back to the middle of the 19th century.
