Description of Muraste beach
Muraste beach is an ideal vacation spot for neighborhood residents. It is conveniently accessible on foot from nearby homes. The lack of full parking makes it not the most convenient for those coming from the capital.

Equipment for a picnic on the beach and in its vicinity is absent. There are no stores, cafes or restaurants nearby either. The place is ideal for walks in the fresh air or for sunbathing.
