Located off the northern coast of Estonia, this a hidden gem with a rich history and unique natural beauty. The smallest of the three islands in the region, Prangli offers a delightful escape from the mainland. Once home to Swedes, this charming island boasts a fascinating past, including tales of pirate treasure and mysterious stone labyrinths. The island's natural surroundings are captivating. From white beaches to picturesque villages, it invites exploration by foot or bike. The tranquil atmosphere and fresh sea air make it an ideal place to unwind. Explore remnants of history, such as the mass grave and memorial to the WW2 Eestirand ship disaster in 1941. You’ll also find the wrecked BMW engine of a German Focke-Wulf fighter shot down over the island in 1944 (the pilot survived). Additionally, there’s a spot in the woods where natural gas seeps out — a relic of Soviet uranium drilling, which turned out to be methane and for years it actually was used to power boats and a nearby lighthouse. Prangli’s approximately 100 inhabitants may seem reserved, but they’re helpful to tourists and will often greet you as you pass by the quaint little homes dotting the landscape.

Where to Eat
You’ll find a small food store on the island and a summer restaurant called Prangli Resto.

Besides the Villa of Nature Energy, there are also accommodations available from the good people at Harbour hostel and camping cabins: info@pranglireisid.ee.
