Africa Beach and Promenade
4.5
About
The splendour of Haapsalu, the famous Czarist era resort, is recalled by the seafront Promenade and its jewel -- the Assembly Hall with its wooden “gingerbread”. Walk on the sloping promenade and glance dreamily at the sea; check the time at the sundial and have a rest on the bench named for the world-famous composer Tchaikovsky. Interesting facts: The Promenade starts at the exotically named Africa Beach, and ends at the Chocolate Promenade, which is named after a former café. There is a children’s playground on the Promenade and the town’s only observation tower. There is also a monument to Carl Hunnius, the discoverer of Haapsalu’s therapeutic mud behind the band shell.

Beautiful and peaceful are were to spend some time and walk around. In my mind, this is the most romantic place in Town. There are many benches to sit, some restaurants and playground for children.

What an enjoyable walk
May 2019 • Solo
I really enjoyed my walk along the promenade, starting at the Birdwatching Tower and ending up by Tcheikovsky's Bench. From the Birdwatching tower i reached a children's playground and a nearby park where there is a beautiful church. I soon passed a small pavilion before reaching the grand old wooden building which used to be a resort over 100 years ago. Nearby is a statue of a polar bear at sea, a ship's anchor and a small walkway where you could anchor your boats. There are also many birds and some of them were nesting. This was one of the highlights of Haapsalu, especially on a beautiful day

Walk along and pretend you're in the 19 century. The scenery is gorgeous- lots of aquatic birds to watch and a cool breeze to enjoy. I never made it to the beach

Small beach but a beautiful promenade

The beach is small but there is a playground for children near the beach. The promenade is very beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

Nice place to take a walk
Jun 2018 • Couples
This park has a lot of old buildings and many benches so after a long walk this is the best place to rest and admire the landscape. When we've visited it wasn't that crowded and there were a lot of swans, offering us an amazing view.
