Keemu observation tower

Pärnu County, Matsalu National Park
The little Keemu port on the southern coast of the Matsalu bay offers a view of the midbay islands and the shallow inland bay and coastal meadows pockmarked with tufts of reed. The inshore islets provide a good nesting place for seagulls, terns, graylag geese and gadwalls; the large coastal meadows are a stopover site for black geese, geese and common crane and a magnificent stopover and nesting place for waders.
