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!.
