"Pirita Beach" Pirita Tip by pure1942

Pirita, Tallinn: 7 reviews and 24 photos

Tallinn's most popular beach is Pirita Tee which lies around 6km from the city centre. The clean sandy beach is easily reached by bus from the central bus terminus under Viru Centre.
The beach is popular with locals and visitors alike and on a sunny day the beach is filled with young Estonians, many enjoying one of the countries most popular sports - volleyball.
We visited at the end of May and were able to enjoy very warm weather (around 20-25 degress) which made Pirita an enjoyable place to spend a few hours.

On the western side of the beach is Pirita Harbour which is filled with sailing and pleasure boats and yachts. You can also rent a boat or pedal boat in Pirita for around 50Kr per hour and take it for a trip up the Pirita river.

Directions: Around 6km east of Tallinn City Centre. Take bus 1, 8, or 34 from the bus terminal under the Viru Centre, out to Pirita.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
