Active holiday

In addition to enjoying unspoilt nature and tranquillity, Hiiumaa offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities, be it hobbies, sailing, entertainment, sports, crafts or cultural events. If you last visited Hiiumaa several years ago, a lot of new things have been built in the meantime, but everything old and good is still there: the lighthouses, the sunny sandy beaches, the shimmering sea and the friendly people of Hiiumaa.

In Kärdla, a new sports centre with a tennis hall and ballroom has been opened, along with a skate park with conference rooms and a hostel, while in Käina, an entertainment centre, the Wind Tower, and a go-karting track have been built. Throughout the island, there is a wealth of playgrounds, cycle paths, 324 kilometres of hiking trails, bathing areas and small beaches. The wind tower has the highest indoor climbing wall in the Baltics, and the Käina Sports Centre with swimming pool, saunas and gym is in the same building.

The seashores and forests of Hiiumaa offer adventures and experiences all year round. You can go fishing with a local fisherman, pick blueberries, ride horses or learn to surf and ice sail. On the Hiiumaa.ee page you will find information about all the opportunities Hiiumaa has to offer.

Ristna beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Estonia; it is located in Hiiumaa on the tip of the Kõpu peninsula. Due to the relief of the seafloor, western winds create surf waves rolling onto the beach; this is why the Ristna beach is loved by water sport enthusiasts. Sand on the Ristna beach is coarse and the water gets deep only a few metres away from the waterline.
Going into the water is at your own risk, as this is not a designated swimming area and there are no lifeguards.

Liivalauka beach is located 3 km from the Sõru harbour towards Tohvri. Sõru-Tohvri highway is a picturesque village road by the sea, winding between swipe wells and lighthouses of Tohvri.

The islets of Hiiumaa are the best kayaking location in the Baltic region. 

Stunning in their natural beauty and full of cultural heritage, the islets are the perfect distance from each other for kayaking. With a low sea level between them, the closeness of the islets provides paddlers with the benefits of warm waters and a route protected from wind and waves. Participants do not have to have previous experience in kayaking.
This trip begins and ends on the Sarve Peninsula. We will paddle between the islets, go on a hike on the islets, and observe sea-birds and seals. We will sleep in tents on the uninhabited islet of Kõrgelaid, where there is a private campground with a campfire and a dry toilet. 

The price applies for groups of at least 12 people!

“A mystical paradise in beautiful nature. The scenery and beachfront are full of surprises. What other beach hides golden eggs on it?”
Paradise is a place and a time. Kaleste beach is one of those places that writer Tõnu Õnnepalu mentions in his book “Paradise”.
Kaleste beach and the camping area on the southern coast of the Kõpu peninsula are some of the most enjoyable places located by a sandy beach on the peninsula. It would be difficult to find a better and more exciting swimming place for families with children.
There is no supervision on the beach, which means visitors swim on their own responsibility.

The 35-metre long and 8-metre wide three-masted motor sailboat Ernst Jaakson (Alar) is the largest old boat to survive in Estonia. The boat was built in 1937–1939 in the Village of Õngu on Hiiumaa Island. Most of its life was spent abroad. Now after 50 years, this giant has been brought back for restoration to the Sõru Harbour in Hiiumaa, which is the only wooden boat restoration centre in Estonia.
