The beach, the longest in Estonia, is well known and loved for its fine sand and pine trees. In addition to the beautiful beach, Narva-Jõesuu is also admired for its marvellous wooden lace architecture, tranquil pine forests, and spas. The nobility of Saint Petersburg used to frequent Narva-Jõesuu for sanatorium-holidays, which earned the town its nickname ‘the Nordic Riviera’.

Hungerburg, the German name of Narva-Jõesuu, was first mentioned on 28 August 1684.
