The crater is impressive and there is good information available on its history. Parking is nearby, and there’s also a food store if you need one.

Let's say that you should visit it once...but that's all. It is must go place in Saaremaa because of it's history, but there are other places more exciting than this.

Interesting natural phenomenon, impressive. Definitely worth a visit. Just keep in mind that it will take you there no longer than 15 minutes. If it is a sunny day, the water is a beautiful green colour

One of "must-visits" in Saaremaa island. The lake was almost dry in the middle of August (a dry period) but just visit and think what a power there can be from a small stone to make this kind of hole. Naturally it is not the biggest crater of the world but due to that you can realize it a bit better probably.

This is the largest of the nine main meteor craters in this area. There is a sign board that explains the find and map that show where the other craters are (some are not accessible as they are on private farmland). Amazing to think that this huge hole was made by a meteor. Bottom of crater had water in it as the water table must be pretty high on this island. There is a small parking lot near the school that is free for your visit to the crater.

This experience is based only on my unrealistic expectation of what it was.
The significance: No denying the fact that this was mighty impressive even at a diameter of 110 meters, one of the few impact event on earth in a populated area. Expected to have hit about 1500 BC.
Easy to reach as its just off the main road on your way from Kuresaare to the ferry.
Unfortunately i expected it to be bigger and much deeper for some reason and felt the sight to be a little underwhelming. There is information at the site and makes for good reading.
Still worth a stop on your way through since it’s not too far off the main road.

The craters are scattered throughout a rural village There are signs saying that it's okay to walk through people's yards to get to the craters as long as you're quiet and respectful. The water level in the main crater was pretty high when we went there (December), and it was a really moving experience. There are also signs with geologic, cultural, and historical information.

Interesting place to visit with children. There is small museum near crater. Good place for quick stop on the way to/from Kuressaare.

But now it was rather modest, as there was very little water. We checked just the main crater, don’t know if the others would have been more interesting.
