Matsalu National Park on the Estonian west coast is a famous bird watching area. It has been a reserve since 1957, and in 1976 it was included in the list of reserves protected under the international Ramsar Convention.

The park is situated around a shallow bay of the Baltic Sea with extensive reedbeds, ideal for migrating birds. There are also meadows, floodplains and so called alvar land. A visitor’s centre has been created in the renovated Penijõe manor. There are also several bird watching towers.
