It's one of a few places in Hiiumaa not advertised, many have maybe heard of it but few of a tourists have found a way there.

I didn't expect that there was a kind of desert in Estonia, nice shot!

That location was for me really astonishing: still after 10 000 years after the Ice-age one can find location where the vegetation has not yet reached. Surely it is very hard for the forest flora to grow further on a very dry and sandy location, but anyway..
