The north-eastern coast of Muhumaa is bordered by smaller and bigger bluffs.

Üügu bluff, which is about 300 m long, is the most representative of them. The bluff is located somewhat inland from the shore but the sea has had a crushing effect on it in the course of the past millennia and has hollowed out the slate in some places to create cave-like basins.

Good to know: the Üügu bluff is the largest and most attractive of Muhu’s bluffs. Before the First World War, dolomite was quarried from the Üügu bluff – this has had a somewhat negative effect on the appearance of the bluff.
