Kärdla is located on the northeastern coast of Hiiumaa, by the Tareste Bay; to the southeast of the town lies the 455 million year old Kärdla meteorite crater. Several small rivers flow through the town. Hiiumaa is an island of flat beaches, berry forests, junipers and a place to be by yourself. It is the smallest but the richest county by the forest in Estonia. The biggest treasure in Hiiumaa is the pure nature and living environment. Hiiumaa in general has a really scattered population so while driving around the island you might have a feeling like there is only you and nature. Every summer there are many music and dance events that have “conquered” most of the island. The Kärdla Culture Centre offers different rooms for organising events.
