The charming Sõmeri islet has trails and two lonely towers - a birdwatching tower and a lighthouse. In the white octagonal tower, there's a beacon that shines all year round and lights an area of 9 nautical miles. You cannot enter the tower but there are plenty of other interesting things to do. The islet's nature offers guests wild strawberries and gorgeous sunsets. It's possible to have a picnic or build stone towers on the rocky beach. Hikers and campers will both find a pleasant stay among the junipers. Please note: The lighthouse is not accessible by car. You can park 1 km away from it by the birdwatching tower or on the side of the road.
