PRANGLI ISLAND / PRANGLI SAAR

Islands part 2..

If you spend time in Tallinn or near by then  Prangi island is a perfect place for a day tour or a short getaway from the city.

Prangli, about 6 square kilometers small island in the Baltic sea, north-coast of Estonia.  Prangli is the only island at the north-Estonia where people have constantly lived over 600 years. During winter barley 50 people but in summer it can be  up to 200 people and of course many tourists visit the place.

In winter i would recommend to go there with mountain or if possible fat bike.. North wind can be pain in the ass sometimes but the feeling cut out from every day life is totally worth it!

Island have couple of guesthouses, where you can rent sauna and rooms, or you can wild camp everywhere! We were lazy and needed some sauna and beer so we stayed in one of the guesthouses in the main village. With one day you can make couple of loops around the island using different paths. Its also possible to visit a shop (its open for coupe of hours during the off season). Coast is really scenic and from the north-east coast you can also see Keri island with a lighthouse. One thing i love about islands here are the people, they are always really friendly and  like to help you, telling great stories about the island and giving a good advice about places where to go.
Prangli has also natural gas, there is a place where you can use the gas for cooking food or boiling water! You can easily use lighter or matches to open fire there.
