Welcome to Kassari
Covered with mixed woodland and boasting some striking coastal scenery, this 8km-long island is linked to Hiiumaa by two causeways that virtually cut off Käina Bay from the open sea. The bay is an important bird reserve, serving as a breeding ground for about 70 different species. You can get a good view of the avian action from the birdwatching tower north of Orjaku, where you’ll also find a short walking trail. During the hot summer months a large part of the bay dries up and becomes not much more than a muddy field.
