Pirita, Tallinn

(4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Nestled against the shores of the Gulf of Finland, Pirita features the city's largest beach and some of its most upscale residential areas. Once a separate town, the area was incorporated into the national capital during the 20th century. Visit the district and explore its multitude of beachfront spaces, including Tallinn's premier waterfront area, complete with soft sand and boardwalks. You'll find that the area's heavily forested landscape and gardens feel like a far cry from the nearby urban bustle. Don't miss seeing the ruins of the convent of St. Bridget, a 15th-century complex that gave birth to the neighborhood itself. Add Pirita to your Tallinn travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Tallinn tour planner.

  • This few kilometres away beach town from Tallinn is a must visit place in summer . Sea waves come rolling in even as sunbathers throng its long beach and many water sports activities including surfing...  more »
  • out of curiosity to see the sea and the sand with snow took us to visit this seaside Pirita just outside a few kilometres from the Centre of Tallinn, just take the Bus 1A and in ten minutes you will arrive at this location, very quaint see the beach covered in snow, still has its charm in this season

  • Definitely worth visiting! Very peaceful in winter. I went back on foot (apr. 6 km) - the view of the city in the dusk from the embankment is awesome!  more »
