Saxby rest stop

Lääne County, Vormsi Landscape Reserve
The shingle beach in the western part of the island is rich in fossils. Being open to storm waves from the sea, the coastline is changing and because of the constant movement of the surface, vegetation here is in constant state of formation and evolution. The beach boasts a lighthouse built in 1864, and young calcareous alvars with a thin soil layer further away from the sea.
