Small but really nice lighthouse with a small museum and a free tower viewer to watch the sea from the top of the lighthouse. Very friendly and helpful staff. Liked it even more than the upper one in Suurupi

In Suurupi, both upper and smaller Lighthouse are real gems. Bigger one is open for visitors aswell, smaller one is private property. The view is sweet. I suggest you to go through and read all the information about its history. And then take nice walk to the beach, from close to smaller lighthouse. Lovely.

If you are a lighthouse lover you might want to take the time to visit during opening hours - whenever that may be. We were traveling during the off season and had no access. What was most disappointing was no information or signs for this location.

This place was definitely the highlight of my trip. Only half an hour from the capital of Estonia, Tallinn. As coming from a country with no legendry maritime life, my imagination was working extra hours. About the brave keeper of the lighthouse, that saved boats that were lost in the heavy fog, and only thanks to his metrological observations, and ringing bells on certain intervals, sailors came home safely.
But this Suurupi one, that survived wars and ravages of time, was even a bigger surprise. Preserving all the magic of the place, in a charming way. Easy to climb, with wide steps, and modernized equipment. Near them a small exposition of old time photos and items that were used like anchors, lanterns, lifelines, and some rusty things but authentic.
Of course we climbed till the roof; there you have 360 great visibilities, to the sea and the grounds around. From all 50 lighthouses of this country, Suurupi won 2. This one is called the RARE, the other is called, THE FRONT. One is 155 years old, the other 254. No wonder its on the UNESCO heritage list. I would love to sleep there a night, and write a story. As this place is full of inspiration.
We got as a nice souvenir. A booklet that looks like a passport, that says-EESTI TULETORNI PASS. Dedicated to all the Estonian lighthouses, each one with a photo, a small map and application, so this is very UNIQUE. I could stamp those 2 and hope to come again, as the visibility wasn’t the best. Maybe on the 3 of August which is the national day of lighthouses in Estonia. Meanwhile I bought a small replica of a lighthouse, to make sure I find the coast, always.
Thing to know-
You can reach by bus number-207 from Tallinn
Need to call in advance or send a mail to coordinate a visit-as its not open regulary.the details are-.

A light in every lighthouse, a light ahead of every port… /L.Normet/

Since 1566 one can find the name Surpe in the world navigation guides. Today, we know this place as Suurupi Peninsula, which was first mentioned in a sea book about the descriptions of medieval shipping routes of the Dutch navigator and cartographer Cornelis Anthonisze.

19. In the middle of the 19th century, sailors continuously complained about the poor condition of the navigational equipment in the Russian waters. In 1859, a wooden beacon was built in Suurupi, 2245 m from the Rear Lighthouse. Together with the stone Rear Lighthouse, they form a target of 246.5⁰, which facilitates departure from Tallinn Bay from between Naissaar and Vahemadal in a westward direction into the Gulf of Finland. In 1863, the eastern wall was painted white, the sides and the rear wall were painted yellow and the roof red. An overseer’s dwelling, a barn and a well were built near the lighthouse. In 1888, the sheeting was renewed and all sides were painted white. A stone kerosene house was added to the station. In 1911, a new wooden house was built. In 1967, the lighthouse was converted to electric power and synchronized with the upper lighthouse. In 1998, the Suurupi Front Lighthouse was restored. The Suurupi Front Lighthouse is one of a hundred working historical lighthouses of the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA). The whole complex is under state protection as a cultural heritage.
