Why locals love it

Katariina Quai is something totally different to the bustling theme park that is the old town and you deserve a medal if you've manage to get here on your own, cause it's a lot of zig-zagging through a Soviet-looking industrial area. Biking or driving are the best options, walking can take you at least an hour.

Why you should visit it

Though it's pretty far, there are plenty of reasons to visit this lovely spot on the other side of the bay. Listen to the waves sliding by, enjoy a different view of Tallinn, have a picnic with friends, look at the ferries passing by or join local Russian-speakers for a swim or fishermen for a chat.

Special tip

It's also amazing on sunny winter days when huge white swans replace the locals.

Hired a local bike and rode out there. Great to ride through the districts and then sit and look out over the skyline. The park near by was great as well. I asked a local and they thought i was mad heading out in the cold weather but it was worth the ride.
