I suggest you to take time and plan the trio there. If you don't have anyone hosting you there. To get there from Papissaare harbour, call to local operator in advance and book your boat trip, so the price is 2,5 eur. If you book a whole separate boat to pick you up, the price is 60 eur per trip. Check the approx times and ask for organised boat. On an island, it's walkable but better to ask someone to drive you around or get a bicycle. Visit Lighthouse, Vesiloo island, go on a beach. Only 3 permanent locals living there,but many summer residents. Ah, btw, with a low water level, at some route you can walt to the island! Many like to use this option. Exclusive l.

If you would like to take some time for your self and to your famili - run away from city. Vilsandi has the greatest nature and greatest peole. You can hike around the island and meet no one. In the summer take a few days and visit the island.

The whole park is amazing and a good area for a hike. The most scenic part however where you also can enjoy most an 'end of the world'-feeling is Harilaid peninsula. this part can only be reached with own transport. There is a circular path that can be followed with at the most western point an abandoned slanting lighthouse which is now in the water instead of on land, because of water level rise and erosion. the atmosphere here is really unique. the path starts with a walk through pine forrest and after passing a lake you reach the sea. however the path passes behind the dunes. it's advisable though to cross the dunes and walk along the sea until meeting the lighthouse. this is a lot more beautiful then the rest of the trail.

This really isn't a review about the park because we didn't get there. The water arises so that the road is below the water. Still I liked a lot to even to see the atmosphere. I recommend a local guide!

Though I'm not a great fan of national parks, I did find my day at the Vilsandi National Park very interesting and relaxing. We had a good local guide who could point out the different types of plants, flowers,(saw some very small orchids) etc., we see on the way. Also, we could see lots of sea birds on the small islands dotting the beaches. We had a lovely lunch at the farmhouse on the island.
