TALLINN - Five sandy beaches in Tallinn will be officially open for public starting June 1, the Tallinn Tourism Information Center reports.

Three nearby islands which can be reached by boat offer a more private, scenic, beach experience, while the popular beaches near the city center offer relaxing pass time opportunities for the working crowd, writes LETA.

Official public beaches in Tallinn are secured. Life guards operate between 9a.m. and 8p.m. on weekends from 9a.m. until 9p.m. A special "traffic light” flag system shows whether the sea is safe for swimming or not and information boards show air and water temperatures.
