Description of Kiipsaare Lighthouse (Estonia)

This spot, close to Kiipsaare Lighthouse, is a large sandy beach lagoon-shaped in the extreme north of the island of Saaremaa. It works great with the wind from the north and, even in the middle of summer, you can find few kiters here and plenty of space to set your kite and ride. No specific hazards and just a fun spot in the heart of the Baltic sea.
