    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.

    You can see the Baltic see on the right side of the peninsula and the Riga bay on the left side. Coffee shop and a fish restaurant next to it. Visit the lighthouse too. Cool visit

    Nice spot for an evening stroll in Kurressare, and why not enjoy it with a mythical tale of the area.
    The sculpture depicts Suur Tõll , a mythical hero of the island Saaremaa, and his wife Piret.
    According to the Legend, Sõrve peninsula was important to Tõll, as from there he reached the shortest way to the island Ruhnu, where he had his cabbage field. When his wife Piret started to make a fire under the cauldron, then Tõll went through the sea to his cabbage field and came back in half an hour, so that he could hand Piret the cabbages when the water had just started to boil.

    I visited Good Kaarma as part of a G Adventures tour I was traveling with. The owners have done a great job creating an inviting, warm environment that radiates with loving energy. The morning that we went to Good Kaarma to learn more about soap making, my stomach wasn't feeling well. Our tour guide told the owner and she immediately made me a hot drink with apple cider vinegar and within 30 minutes I felt like a new person. The soaps smell so good and are made with all natural ingredients. I would highly encourage making this a stop if you visit Saaremaa Island.

    The monument was built in the Soviet era to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Red Army. The inscription on the monument - to the "defenders and liberators" of Saaremaa - clearly reflects the political views of the Soviet side and is probably something that few Estonians these days would identify with.

    Yet for all that, stopping by the monument does give you an opportunity to think about the troubled past and perhaps reflect on the brutality of war that took place there not all that long ago. Even more so, all the politics aside, it is a very quiet, tranquil spot much like many other historic battlefields.

    We took the time to walk around the nearby beach and forest, which is absolutely stunning, with plenty of moss and mushrooms. The contrast between the beauty of nature and the man-made horrors of war makes this a very special place.

    It is such a nice view and path that leads to the crater. The colour of the crater is light green and looks interesting. The crater is small from the top but when you come closer it looks much bigger

    Was nice to visit during the holiday season with a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations. Just very relaxing and antique-feeling. There's also plenty of restaurants there and a nice old church.

    Very large church in small village/farm. Though it was locked up tight it was an interesting stop to walk around. There are a few other carved stones under protective roofs to see and some information (to weathered to read). The carving on the building is interesting and this obviously supported a much bigger congregation then the small village in the immediate area today.

    Memorial to those who fought for the First Period of Latvian Independence 1918-1920. It is located right in the middle of town and is perfect to stroll by in the evening after a good dinner.

    A bit poor condition. Better visit would be REO. 12 km from city center. Open every day. Monks and nuns labouring in gardens.

    After shopping in the COOP Supermarket, we walked around the town center, now undergoing renovation, and spotted the tall white tower of this church and decided to enter.
    After the vestibule, the second door opened to the interior and we were overwhelmed with organ music. It turns out there was a recital and after several minutes, the organist descended the back stairs to congregation applause and received a bouquet of flowers at the front. Beautiful white interior columns, pews, and altar.
