The coast between Aa and Toila is lined by cliffs where it coincides with the edge of the Baltic Glint. At Ontika, north of Kohtla-Järve, these cliffs reach their greatest height of 56m. The views out to sea are spectacular, though getting a good look at the cliffs is near impossible as they're obscured by trees, and climbing down can be a deadly affair. To save lives, a 2-million-Kroon metal staircase was built in 1999, 5km east at Valaste, facing Estonia's highest waterfalls (25.6m), which, depending on the month, may be a mere trickle.
Toila and Saka is the waterfall at Valaste, which looks natural but in fact was
engineered in the 1970s. Its drop of around 25m makes it the deepest waterfall in
the Baltic states. It is at its best in midwinter, when it completely freezes. Wedding
couples have their picture taken with the waterfall as a background and fix a lock
to the bridge as a symbol of hope for their marriage to last.
