What to do when you get there
On the island you’ll find the Kihnu Museum, located in a 19th-century schoolhouse, a 16th-century church, and the cemetery where the island’s legendary hero, Kihnu Jőnn is buried. At the southern tip of the island stands a lighthouse built in 1864. Contact the travel agency Kihnurand, tel. +372 525 51 72, www.kihnurand.ee for information about camping, farmstays and tours on Kihnu.
A ferry runs directly from Pärnu to Kihnu (See the Getting around section) but you can also opt for the one at Munalaid Harbour, tel. +372 447 44 43, 50km outside of Pärnu. Munalaid itself is easily reachable by buses from Pärnu, theoretically timed to meet the ferries.
