Purpose: Construction of Kauksi beach promenade and beach centre building. The State Shared Service Center financed Alutaguse municipality’s project nr 2014-2020.5.04.17-0232 “Construction of Kauksi Beach Centre and beach promenade” from the European Regional Development Fund.

Result: With this project, additional motivation to visit Lake Peipus’s northern coast has been generated. This enables the offering of new services, and therefore stimulates the region’s development as a visitor destination that is attractive throughout the year.

The total cost of the project was 1 454 318 euros. The project was successfully completed by November 30, 2021.


Kauksi beach is a picturesque place right by one of Europe’s biggest lakes, Lake Peipus. It is also here that you’ll find Estonia’s longest sandy beach. Breath-taking lake views, hot sand, and a pine forest offering refreshing shade on a sunny day make Kauksi an attractive resort, which is well known and much loved among locals.

In 2021, Kauksi Beach Centre, designed by KAOS architects Toomas Adrikorn and Margit Aule, was opened. A spacious L-shaped building offers views over Lake Peipus and is meant to cater for beach visitors. Sure enough, it is also a unique place to come and hide from the autumn winds. You are always welcome here!

Kauksi Beach Centre is located in an extraordinary place. It is surrounded by pine forest with many hiking trails close by. The forest is wonderful for bike rides, walks regardless of the weather, and for picking blueberries along the way. Along the shore of Lake Peipus, on the Kauksi sand dunes and underneath the pine trees, there is a roughly one-kilometre-long boardwalk, which is enriched with seating areas and viewing platforms.

On the beach promenade, there are children’s playgrounds, two volleyball courts, a street basketball court, an outdoor gym with 16 pieces of equipment, and a sheltered picnic area, which is often used as a stage for outdoor concerts during the summertime. Therefore, it is quite easy to enjoy romantic open-air concerts and live music accompanied by lake views here. It is especially lovely during the Night of Ancient Lights or on Midsummer’s Day.

In addition, the promenade has beach chairs, benches, dressing cabins, toilets, and an outdoor shower, which are meant for everyone who is enjoying the beach fun. During the summer season, there is also a pop-up café on the terrace of Kauksi Beach Centre.

The construction of Kauksi Beach Centre and the beach promenade was funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
