Sports games at UusKalda Sports and Holiday Village

Some people think that sports is only professional sports; others are active in order to feel good and have fun. We offer options for people with various levels of fitness, to children, as well as adults. No one will mind if you will not do as well as you hoped because the joy of being outdoors outweighs all failures. None of our athletic games require previous experience and knowledge. After simple instructions, you will already know all the basics, and then, everything is in your hands. Disc golf, footgolf, indiaca, beach volleyball and slackline are only some sports games that we offer.

Peraküla beach

This beautiful countryside, largely untouched by civilization and surrounded by sparse settlement, is alluring to nature enthusiasts, who are able to visit the nearby forest to forage blueberries, cowberries and mushrooms. The Nõva coastal area is also enchanting to those interested in enjoying a beach setting and getting a little surfing in. The sandy beach of Peraküla offers close to a dozen kilometres of pure singing sand. Did you know…?: There are no lifeguards at this beach, and RMK Peraküla has a camping area with campfire sites and outhouses, as well as having a 200 capacity car park at Peraküla beach.
