I LOVE this place ! Can you imagine an almost unspoilt island a mere water-bus ride from the capital city with sandy beaches, forest, warm rocks ( if you go on a sunny day ! ) clear water, great coffee and doughnuts AND views over Helsinki that make people drool ? Take your binoculars & your camera ... I have photographed a Bewick swan here !

Filled with people if good weather. Visitor port has electricity and possibility to fill portable water tanks.
Restaurant had HUGE queues, but food came quickly, after I manage to place my order.

Popular place to spend a summer day. Take the ferry from café carousel in kaivopuisto. Pick up some strawberries on the way. Bring your swimming stuff and picnic food. Enjoy the beach, or pick a spot on the rocks by the water, go swimming and watch cruise ships go by. There's also a restaurant on the island. The food isn't great by it's ok if you don't expect gourmet.

This is a nice island next to helsinki. It has long sand beach with children friendly places. It is possible to stay with tent over night and you can find three places to grill your own food. Toilettes are oldish and smells like "camping spirit". You can find restaurant in island if you prefer to eat or drink there. Boats runs from two places. Kaivopuisto and salmisaari. Two way trip cost is 5,50€ and in my mind it is not cheap.
