It is home to a 30-50 m high ancient shore precipice of Baltic ice lake covered with a broad leaf forest rich in terms of species as well as a dune ridge and narrow hallow complex. Seaside with sandy beach and dunes, dry dune pine woods and several kilometres long dune ridges (kangari) interchanging with narrow hollows (vigas) are an integral part of the park. National park is located on the migratory bird fly way, in spring a huge amount of migratory birds can be spotted out here. The park is inhabited by rare and endangered reptiles, such as a pond turtle and copperhead snake and in the vicinity of Kolka – natter jack toad. In fishing villages on the seaside one can get to know the Liv or Livonian cultural heritage – an essential part of cultural-historic heritage of Northern Europe.
