Kakumäe Peninsula is a part of Tallinn’s administrative district Haabersti, situated on the western edge of the city’s border. The distance from the city center is about 10 km. It has almost exclusively private residences, so the area is really quiet and personal, everything how we love here in Estonia. The most fascinating thing I’ve found about this peninsula is that it is reachable by city public transportation, but when you get there, you don’t feel like you’re in the capital of the country.
The peninsula has plenty of roads for pedestrians and bicycles; a few months ago the sports trail was also built. The peninsula has a beach to offer — I go there quiet often in the summer, because usually there are almost no people compared to the other beaches in Tallinn, and the water at Kakumäe is warmer also, because the beach is in the bay. Moreover, the peninsula has a really beautiful dock with a nice view of the city center. When you get to the tip of the peninsula, you can see a part of the Baltic Klint (basically a limestone cliff) with a nice view as well.
Kakumäe peninsula is also one of the best places to view a sunset in the city in my opinion — there are a lot of beautiful sunsets here all year round. All in all, it is a great place to walk, rest and restore your mind just 10 km away from the city center.
