We are against the destruction of Ninase peninsula and we don’t support the idea of changing Saaremaa harbour to a cargo port!
The Ninase village
Ninase is a peaceful and lovely village which is located in north-western part of Saaremaa island, in Mustjala parish. With its unspoilt and picturesque nature Ninase attracts a huge number of holiday makers each summer and the number of people who want to live in Ninase village has been increasing every year.
Ninase neighbours are Tagaranna and Kugalepa villages. In the east, Ninase is bordered with Küdema bay, which is also an internationally Important Bird Area (IBA) and belongs to the Natura 2000 network ( read more about Küdema Bay ) .
Today, the main attractions in the village are wooden windmills - Toell the Great( Suur Tõll in Estonian mythology - he was a great giant hero who lived, according to the legend, in Saaremaa) and his wife Piret. Also in Ninametsa forest there are well-preserved military objects.
Now to the main reason, why this website was created - Saaremaa harbour, opened in 2006, in Ninase village. This is a deep-water port which is designed to receive yachts and cruise vessels. Today this harbour has become the biggest concern in the village – the owner of this port, The Port of Tallinn, wants to start using the harbour for industrial purposes, which could handle 100,000-300,000 tonnes of solid bulk goods a year. Also The Port of Tallinn is planning to build industrial and warehouse buildings and infrastructure in the port area.
Based on Mustjala Parish development plan, the Ninase area is a valuable landscape for the county, with its cultural-historical values and well-preserved landscape.
Opening the Saaremaa harbour as a cargo port means destruction of Ninase Peninsula!
