Veskijärve campfire site

Lääne County, Nõva Recreation Area
The 2008 forest fire opened up a view to the interesting landforms of the area, which appeared thousands of years ago, when Lake Veskijärv was separated from the Littorina Sea. Here you can take a 4-km walk through the bog to Lake Tänavjärv and back. It is a good fishing lake, but it is not possible to fish from the shore.
