“One of the few surf spots in the country”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Ok, let's face it if your looking for surf spots in Finland you're in the wrong end of the world. However, all is not lost. Yyteri is in fact one of the few places in Finland where you get a surfable wave at times although wind surfing and paddle boarding is in fact a more frequent choice around these parts. If you realize by now that you left your board at home, fear not, the local surf center (Yyteri surfkeskus) located just north of the spa hotel, along the beach carries an adequate set of boards and wetsuits. The boad rentals are around 15 € per hour and they offer lessons too.
Please not that if the weather is great, probably all equipment will be rented out so book in advance. Parking can be hard to find at times but snacks and drinks are available at a small bar between the hotel and the surf center. They even offer the use of sauna at affordable prices (about 5 €) which is great if the weather is cold, and the water will most likely be cold anyway. :)
All in all a great beach with a laid back feel. Do visit if you're in the area, you don't get dunes this far north in every town.

“Versatile terrain combined with fauna and flora”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Exceptional waterfront in these latitudes. When you walk towards Mäntyluoto direction, there is a reed bed area with variety of wading birds, swallows and swans etc. The woods behind the sand flourish withTwinflower (Linnaea) and Moneses uniflora (One-flowered Wintergreen).

The area is beautiful either you walk in the waterfront or in the Nature Trail in the woods. And in a sunny warm day you can enjoy the sea and the sun on the beach.

“South in Finland”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Yyteri is like to be in Canary Islands, from the view. Be sure that there is a hot day, so You dont' freeze so much.

“Frozen sea!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Go there in winter. Everyone knows how a beach looks like in summer (sun, blue water, sand and so on), what makes Yyteri truly exceptional is the winter. Go there and enjoy the gentle pink shades the setting sun throws in the early afternoon. Walk on the frozen sea and smile! This doesn't happen on most beaches you have seen!

“A must-see!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

The Yyteri beach is during summertimes a must-see in the Satakunta-region. The beach is excellent, the bottom of the sea is sand and the beach is very shallow, therefore child-friendly. The services are basic- ice cream and french fries. But it´s very popular to take your own food and a "blanket" where you can sit on with you. During summertimes there are many people coming by a car, so be prepared to park a little further. The parking (a visitor not with a "camping car") does not cost anything. The camping area is separated and that costs.
