About
The sandy beaches and pine forests on the shores of Lake Peipus are the perfect place to relax and offer great hiking opportunities. The unique sand dunes and 40 km of sandy beaches mean the lake is a haven for summer holiday makers. Its beaches offer great swimming in warm waters and great walking on its ever-shifting singing sands. There is a wide variety of accommodation options along the northern coast of the lake, including campsites. There are also picnic and rest spots for visitors.Did you know…? *‘Singing sands’ are the result of the friction of grains of silica rock on beaches and in deserts. They are a sign of the purity of the water and beach.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lake Peipsi is the 4th biggest lake in Europe between Russia and Estonia. It has nice sandy beaches and one can fish. What is unique there are so-called onion villages where old orthodox Russians grow onions. Villages Varnja,Kolkja,Kasenpää form a lõng colourful street with a special character absolutely different from all the ohter villages in Estonia. You can dine in a fish restaurant,Kivi (stone) kõrts(inn), Sepikoja trahter (smithy tavern). There are open houses like a muuseum, old churches and graveyards. In Sept. there are onion markets. Visit also Voronja Gallery, Kostja sibulatalu (onion house).

Lake Peipsi forms the border between Estonia and Russia. Massive body of water. 4th largest in Europe or so I was told.
