Had a lively visit to the farm with helpful and friendly staff who were calling the animals to come closer and offered explanations. Do not expect a petting zoo. The visitors, especially children are told to behave near the animals and not to startle them as lamas and alpacas are not your average household pets. This is fair also to the animals who would otherwise be simply too stressed. We did have lovely time watching the alpacas graze, chase each other and got to give them a few carrots as well as to meet the baby miniature lamb up close. The farm also has a very nice gift shop that sells handicraft woolen items. Great day with family.

Parnu Beach Promenade

Completed in 2006, the attractive Beach Promenade has the feeling of a real resort and makes the Summer Capital's beaches inviting even in bad weather! Romantically winding down the beach, the promenade surprises you with is well-thought functionality, and playfulness that comes from the use of different materials and fountains.Thought-out lighting keeps the beach active even when the sun goes down, and the playing colours of the fountains are a sight in themselves in the darkness of the night.Come and enjoy real beach feeling!.

The Parnu Jetty

Parnu has always been an important harbour. To stop sand build-up in the river mouth, jetties made from logs were built in 1769, as ordered by the empress Catherine II. In 1863-64, new jetties were built of rocks that were transported there from the beaches of Haademeeste and Kihnu. The length of both jetties was a bit over two kilometres.The jetty on the left bank of the river has become a symbol of Parnu.The jetty has gained a romantic aura as a place for lovers to take walks on; however, before taking a walk there, be sure to check the water level! At times, the jetty can be left completely under water, but when the water level is low, you can even see the ends of the wooden poles of the previous jetty.

My 3 year old son absolutely loved this place! If I first thought that spending a whole day there would be too much then actually we all had a lot of fun visiting those lovely houses, enjoying fun characters and their performances and exploring all those little details that make this place so special! Definitely worth visiting :)

Tervise Paradiis Water Park

The water park is a relaxing place for spending time with family and friends! The two floors of the water park accommodate 700 visitors at a time. The water park offers interesting activities for grown-ups and the young, for beginners and experienced water lovers. The more courageous visitors can use a 4 metre diving platform, and the depth of water underneath is 4 metres. Everyone riding the tube slides or torrential mountain rivers will definitely get a good shot of adrenaline. There are also pools, Jacuzzis, waterfalls, Finnish sauna and steam sauna, sauna centre Paradiisi Saunad, the Aqua bar, an outdoor heated pool (open in winter too!), a summer terrace and a bar waiting for you in the water park. The attractions of the water park allow everyone to be active - from a toddler to the elderly. The longest of the slides is 100 metres long. The shortest slide is meant for young children. The visitors sliding in tubes will not land in the pool, but safety channel.
