This is one of the most popular beaches around Helsinki. It's very crowded during the day and at the weekends. I had the chance to be there at midnight. It was an excellent experience. The water was not really cold and people were swimming. The...More

An artificial, but incredibly beautiful beach located on the coast west of the city center. In walking distance from the city center. Facilities for various activities (volleyball etc).

Went on a nice sunny day, but as it had not been a hot summer the water was still a bit cold, but a great beach just to relax and read a book while soaking in some vitamin D. There is a nice atmosphere on...More

Spent a few hours here while out sightseeing. Very relaxing stop despite the crowds (on the beach, few in the water). It was nice that there are lockers and showers available (bring a few coins), so it was easy to change in and out of...More
