Overview

Kihnu island is a peculiar alloy of contemporary and the past. Proclaimed by UNESCO Kihnu culture space is living and functioning till nowadays. Kihnu women wear every day self woven traditional skirts (kort), already small children know Kihnu dances and songs and Kihnu dialect is taught in the school.The sea surrounding Kihnu island is low and stony, around the island there are a lot of little islets. Kihnu strait is the high importance gathering place for birds and nesting area for birds endangered in Europe.7 km long and 3,3 km large Kihnu island has perfect size for exploring it by bicycle!

I visited Kihnu in the end of August with my mother's colleagues and their families. The nature is absolutely beautiful and reflects ethnic Estonia very well. Just get a bike and drive around- it's so small :) It will give you the chance to see...More

Little island with one bar is place to go when your mind is overloaded and you have only few days to rest. Take bicycle (a lot of places where you can rent one) and go. It was rainings all time I was here but it...More

The best way to examine the island is bike ride. Bicycles can be rented from port. Enjoy the beautiful landscapes and villages. Travel to the island leaves a good impression.

Kihnu is definetely worth visiting in case you are interested in local cultures and special environment. Everything about this island is about people living on it. Both past and present. No upscale accommodation facilities at least up till now but a special relaxed atmosphere replaces...More

It's a petty how few people (even Estonians themselves) actually make it to this island but it's just awesome! The insanely cool part of this 7km-long island is that it's run by women! While walking around, you'll easily see old women in traditional clothes passing...More
