The purpose of the Narva-Jõesuu promenade project is to add value and highlight the greatest asset of the once famous resort town – its 12 km long beach. Along with the reconstruction of the beach area, Aia Street, parallel to the beach, was renovated, which functions as a second promenade if the conditions on the beach, which is most exposed to Estonian sea storms, is unsuitable for promenading. The renovation project covered altogether 3.5 km, of which 500 metres is on the beach.

The Narva-Jõesuu beach area is weakly linked to the urban environment compared to other larger Estonian resort towns and this is why the design is of different character. The design is especially minimal and sensitive on the actual beach, where a boardwalk was created that at places takes a rectangular shape to follow the natural shapes precisely. At places the boardwalk extends to larger areas with benches where people can make an open fire and barbecue. Not one tree was taken down to build the boardwalk and the path follows the landscape of natural dunes that have now partly engulfed the boardwalk.

The boardwalk is supplemented with concrete walls that serve as endings of streets leading to the beach, which are much more prominent elements due to their design and the use of material. These elements mark a clear border between the urban and natural environment and offer protection against the natural power of dunes.

A longer part of the promenade is on Aia Street, where pedestrians and cyclists are given priority. The solutions used there are much more connected to the historic heritage of the resort in terms of design; for example, walls built of slate and gazebos decorated with wooden lace that are characteristic of Narva-Jõesuu are built.

Currently, the historic beach area – such as the mobile kiosks created to mimic the historic bathing machines – has not yet been realised as planned in the project. The pieces of furniture/facilities (changing cabins, etc.) on the beach and promenade are moveable.
