Summer has really begun now and the weather has been perfect for the beach. Each day the water gets just a bit warmer. The beaches near Pärnu are all on the Gulf of Riga and the water is very shallow and therefore it warms up petty quickly. Perfect for fun in the sun. There are many beaches, some more popular than others. These pictures are from some of the less populated beaches. I was able to walk about 75 paces out into the water and the water barely reached my hips – I would have gone further, but it started to get a bit cool for my liking! The beaches are all soft white sand with tiny shells here and there.
