I come here almost every week during the Summer. The new cafeteria is quite expensive, but nice. The terrace could be bigger. I would like to see a big terrace with some shade too. The public toilets are OK, there's even one wheelchair accessible booth. But no diaper change room, which is odd...?

On a hot day this is one of the best beaches in Helsinki. The water is very calm and totally safe to swim in. Nothing here in winter though.

The fact is, in Finland there is only a short period of beach weather. Usually only from mid June to mid August. Outside that time period the beach areas are pretty much useless.
On the high season the Hietalahti beach is one of the most overcrowded beaches i have ever visited and despite that has only little services available. I think it's impossible to feel comfortable here.

Travel back in time and swim with the olympians. Great pool and outdoor area. Very cool architecture.

It takes three years at gym to feel respected at this beach. The average age of visitors is 19 and they are not with their parents. Located near of the Hietalahti cemetery where you find the graves of Finnish presidents and other greats if there were any, it’s quite a shock.
