Overview
More
In 1646 Livonian governor general Gabriel Oxenstierna had a primitive lighthouse – a beacon – built on a little island located at the tip of Sorve Peninsula. Autumn storms showed that the small island selected for the beacon was unsuitable and the beacon was relocated to the tip of Sorve Peninsula. A stone tower was established there in 1770, but it was destroyed in the Second World War. The present cone-shaped lighthouse of monolithic concrete was built in 1960.Interesting facts: • The height of Sorve Lighthouse from its foot is 52 metres and it is 53 metres above sea level.

Be careful, September counts as winter season, that means museum is closed, nothing is working around there. You can't get into the lighthouse even when everything else works. In good weather conditions you can see Latvia. Beautiful sea, very interesting lighthouse.

Saaremaa has a number of lighthouses but this is one of the more impressive ones with its distinctive and dominant two colours. The surrounding rather windswept area is worth a walk though it can be bracing in the wind. We saw a number of birds...More

Go early in the morning and capture the scene. Very pretty area of the island. Wander along the sea and be careful not to step on the little critters along the way.

At the end of the road. You cannot go into the lighthouse, but you can wander the museum in the three storey building nearby. There is a child's playroom, washrooms (for a fee if you don't buy a museum ticket), a gift shop, and then...More
