Naissaar Things to Do
South and North tours
main hiking roads turn to south part of island, one route to north. Both are interesting. If You don´t have much time, visit south route. They are all marked. uœe guide, if available. See renovated wooden church, cemetery, seamine factory, sand dunes, old artillery batteries, narrow railway, Männiku village (with museum of Naissaar during soviet military time) and Nargen Opera house (big wooden building).
From north side You can find military buildings, unique beach landscapes (protected) and some abandoned military vechicles. And lightshouse on north pensinsula.
One and only restaurant - sometimes good
I have different experiences with local restaurant. The only place to eat is Nature Reserve centre, few hundred meters from harbour. But it´s not open always. And sometimes You get good meal, sometimes bad or nothing. I remember fish was good. Cafe was bad and small.
Favorite Dish: Fish plate.
Growded hot season
During high season (june-july) camping place may be very crowded. Some Youth groups visit island and they may be noisy. But You have no choice - all peo´ple have to camp at one campground. At night, there is not allowed to walk on island. It´s dangerous in dark - many holes, metal trash and other military things under the forest.
Dress Code: as You wish :)

Naissaar Warnings and Dangers
Avoid non-official paths
Itœ recommended to use only hiking routes that are marked on island. Off the paths may be dangerous to your health sometimes (holes, metal trash, ruins etc).
Naissaar Off The Beaten Path
Avoid off the beaten paths, really
There is no suggestions to leave the paths on Naissaar island. It´s prohibited to walk far from paths marked as hiking routes. It´s dangerous because island was closed military area and even if all the forests are scanned and checked, there may be things that are dangerous still somewhere. Use paths, not use off the beaten path routes.
