Overview
More
Parnu has always been an important harbour. To stop sand build-up in the river mouth, jetties made from logs were built in 1769, as ordered by the empress Catherine II. In 1863-64, new jetties were built of rocks that were transported there from the beaches of Haademeeste and Kihnu. The length of both jetties was a bit over two kilometres.The jetty on the left bank of the river has become a symbol of Parnu.The jetty has gained a romantic aura as a place for lovers to take walks on; however, before taking a walk there, be sure to check the water level! At times, the jetty can be left completely under water, but when the water level is low, you can even see the ends of the wooden poles of the previous jetty.

Wavebreakers are going far-far in the sea along the river direction, so you can jump over the boulders far in the sea.

Our kids love hopping from rock to rock. Once you get to the end there are great panoramas of the shore. We were the only people who ventured out to the lighthouse so it was very peaceful. I did have some nagging concerns...What if someone...More

Over 2km long, some of stones are slippery. Another side is Pärnu-river and another side is sea. Beware of tide and weather.

I think the wall is approx 2km. I only got halfway because it was very windy and tide seemed to be coming in. But it's an awesome walk out between the sea and river

These jetties are popular among the locals and therefore worthwhile visiting. It gives you great chance to walk between the sea and the river, enjoy the breeze and sound of waves:)

A very relaxing walk into the sea. Nice to do with a significant other on a Nice day. It's a long walk if you want to make it to the end, but worth it.
