Outdoor sights in Kassari
- Sort by:
Southern Kassari narrows to a promontory with some unusual vegetation and ends in a thin 3km spit of land the tip of which, Sääre Tirp, juts out into the sea. It's a beautiful place for a walk. On the way towards Sääre Tirp you'll pass by a small swimming beach (about 500m past the fork to Orjaku).
You'll also notice a statue of the local hero, Leiger, carrying a boulder on his shoulder. He was a relative of Suur Tõll, Saaremaa's hero. Legend has it that the Sääre Tirp is the result of an aborted bridge he started to build to Saaremaa, to make it easier for Suur Tõll to visit and join in various heroic acts.
