Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Breaghtakingly beautiful views and cliffs - even if you don't visit the actual lighthouse (even though you really should).

    When you are in Paldiski it is a nice place to check out! However there were signs warning about the danger of walking on the cliffs along the road. We stayed close to the road not going much onto the edge. It looks like Ireland.

    Summer of 2022 until unknown time, the trail is cut in half by the construction site of a gas pipe, with no way to get around it! No warning signs at either end of the trail, no pointing signs where to go. The trail just ends suddenly with a sign: danger zone, do not enter. Especially uncomfortable if you approach it from the direction of Kloogaranna/Leetse - the trail is too long to go back, there is no public transport anywhere for miles... just a dead end. I missed the lighthouse and the great viewing platform at the tip of the peninsula. There was a pier with heavy machinery to my right and a giant cliff to my left, which I somehow managed to climb, but then ended up fenced in, in construction danger zone. Had to push through a very narrow gap in the fence, a heavier person could not get through for sure. No signs or notices anywhere about where you're supposed to go when meeting the construction zone.. ended up walking through the wind turbine park, which was several km wide. This was not something I planned to go and see.

    Most of the trail is rugged sort of beautiful though. Once the pipeline has been finished, this trail is definitely worth visiting though. Another warning: do not try this trail with kids under 10 yo. The trail at the edge of the cliff is dangerous. Possible to take an alternate route on the mainland though, which is not marked however, possibility of getting lost

    Went on a day trip to Paldiski from Tallin. What outstanding value, just 3.30 euros for an hour ride on a clean and modern train. You will need to get your tickets on the train as the ticket office at the station do not sell them. The station at Paldiski is a wonderful Soviet style timber structure, which sadly is now gradually falling into disrepair.

    It is built in 1784–1787 and it is still looks good and beautiful. It is easy to find it but it is not opened every day. you can walk aroud the church and you may park your car somethere near.to move by wheelchair around the church is not very comfortable, but the road is very close to the church. If you come by train, it is less than 1 km from trainstation
    widows are big and if you want to see inside, you can climb a little bit. at night port lights are shining on the church
