Why locals love it

According to a legend, the seawall was built by a man who wanted to get a closer look at the stars and the Moon. Be it a starry sky or not, it's still a romantic place where locals love to sit or take a walk.

Why you should visit it

The seawall has become one of the important symbols of Pärnu. When the water is low you can even see parts of the old wooden seawall. Start your walk from Vallikäär heading to the seawall and along the beach until Tervise Paradiis.

Special tip

Nudist beach nearby.

One of my favorite walk in Pärnu, both in autumn, winter, spring and summer. Seawalls were built 1863-1864 to protect the harbor and are separating river of Parnu from bay of Parnu.

Nice spot to hang out and talk or be silent, with a drink or without.

Another legend says that if you walk hand in hand with your loved one till the end of the seawall and kiss there, you´ll stay together till the end of your lives. But it doesn´t matter whether you´re looking for a romantic walk, want to spend time with yourself or have fun with your friends jumping on the rocks, the seawall has something to offer for everyone. And don´t be surprised to find locals having a picnic at the end there, enjoying the sounds of the sea and waving to passing ferries and boats.
