A seaside and harbour town PDF Prindi


For several decades waste water from industries and households was discharged into Kuressaare Bay. As a result, the seaside grew over with reeds and swimming was not possi ble. The Waste Water Treatment Plant, launched in 1989, provided the preconditions for cleaning the bay and restoring the fame of Kuressaare as a summer resort.

In 1999, the beach was re-opened to the public after many years. In 1999, also the construction of Kuressaare Yacht Harbour, meeting international standards, was completed. The seaside area offers opportunities for different sports and leisure activities.

The main sea gate to Kuressaare is Roomassaare Port, 5 km from the town centre. The harbour was constructed in 1894 and reconstructed in 1998/1999 and serves the functions of both passenger and cargo port.
