The splendour of Haapsalu, the famous Czarist era resort, is recalled by the seafront Promenade and its jewel -- the Assembly Hall with its wooden “gingerbread”. Walk on the sloping promenade and glance dreamily at the sea; check the time at the...more

Walk along and pretend you're in the 19 century. The scenery is gorgeous- lots of aquatic birds to watch and a cool breeze to enjoy. I never made it to the beach

The beach is small but there is a playground for children near the beach. The promenade is very beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

This park has a lot of old buildings and many benches so after a long walk this is the best place to rest and admire the landscape. When we've visited it wasn't that crowded and there were a lot of swans, offering us an amazing...More

Africa beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Estonia, few steps away from town center, in the middle of pure nature.

Easy, pleasant, meandering walk along the shores. Promenade is an apt name. Nice benches, huge leafy trees, gazebos. Also fun to check out the gorgeous homes which butt up to the promenade. A very nice spot indeed.

Africa Beach and promenade are a great spot to visit in Haapsalu. Easy access, great views and even the opportunity to swim (for those brace enough to test the Baltic temperatures). Very child friendly, but also a romantic spot. Ticks all boxes.

Nice seaside walk. Well maintained and manicured. But to call it a beach is pushing your luck! A few interesting sculpture in the sea.

Amazing long promenade along the sea. Perfect for long walks and strolls. There are lots of little cafés on the shore, small sculptures and monuments, lots of benches. We saw several swans as well. Near African beach there is large area for kids, with lots...More
