The splendour of Haapsalu, the famous Czarist era resort, is recalled by the seafront Promenade and its jewel -- the Assembly Hall with its wooden “gingerbread”. Walk on the sloping promenade and glance dreamily at the sea; check the time at the sundial and have a rest on the bench named for the world-famous composer Tchaikovsky. Interesting facts: The Promenade starts at the exotically named Africa Beach, and ends at the Chocolate Promenade, which is named after a former café. There is a children’s playground on the Promenade and the town’s only observation tower. There is also a monument to Carl Hunnius, the discoverer of Haapsalu’s therapeutic mud behind the band shell.

Easy, pleasant, meandering walk along the shores. Promenade is an apt name. Nice benches, huge leafy trees, gazebos. Also fun to check out the gorgeous homes which butt up to the promenade. A very nice spot indeed.

Africa Beach and promenade are a great spot to visit in Haapsalu. Easy access, great views and even the opportunity to swim (for those brace enough to test the Baltic temperatures). Very child friendly, but also a romantic spot. Ticks all boxes.

Nice seaside walk. Well maintained and manicured. But to call it a beach is pushing your luck! A few interesting sculpture in the sea.

Amazing long promenade along the sea. Perfect for long walks and strolls. There are lots of little cafés on the shore, small sculptures and monuments, lots of benches. We saw several swans as well. Near African beach there is large area for kids, with lots...More

Attended mid summer wedding of my cousin and the staff as well as the food and the facilities were fitting nicely with the theme. The unbelievable view outside towards the skyline.

Nice promenade with a view on the lake/sea. Went there in off-season so it was not really busy but still enjoyed it.

If the weather is nice, it will be beautiful. If not, it is still worth it. This is a beautiful promenade, with some old buildings from the turn of the century. Feel the atmosphere of a 100 years ago involve you!

Very well-planned, clean and charming promenade. Winds through some adjacent small parks and sculptures, with English and Estonian descriptions. I had a great run here one AM.
