Veski quarry rest stop

Lääne County, Nõva Recreation Area
An old sand quarry from the soviet time that has now been taken under protection. The hollows in the bottom of the quarry have filled with water and the protected natterjack toad has been populated there.
In the surrounding you can see the recovery of the nature that suffered in the 2008 forest fire.
The 30 m high dunes date back 8000 years to the times when the Littorina Sea lay here.
