This is the nearby island where Helsinki people escape the heat and when we want relax, swim, and be close to the sea. You can take with your own picnic but there is restaurant as well. To the island you can get by boats from Kaivopuisto

This is a perfect place for a day trip with friends and/or family and worth the ferry trip from Helsinki (Ruoholahti or Kaivopuisto). Bring your own snacks or visit the restaurant and kiosk. For the latter two, check the opening hours since they might be closed outside high season. The beach is lovely and clean and it gives a great... More

This island is a must for Helsinki locals, I usually visit at least once every summer. You usually get more peace and quiet in the more remote areas such as the rocks facing the Helsinki waterfront. The sand beach is usually filled with people..

Summer paradise! Just a short boat trip ( 10 minutes ) from the Carousel- cafe you will arrive to a twin island summer oasis. The main island is mainly for families and sandy beaches for easy swim. There is also a basic summer restaurant in an old wooden villa at the western end. The smaller island has a camping place... More

You would never imagine such a beautiful and exotic island resting so near the shores of Helsinki. Bbq spots everywhere with wood,toilets,beaches,volleyball nets,docks for boats, trails,cafe,restaurant and even a nudist section. 6 euros return trip to paradise, see you there!

Very beautiful island just a few minutes off the coast of Helsinki. A rarity in itself a secluded nude beach, if normal beaches aren´t your cup of tea.

It is an island located very near Helsinki and from where you access in summertime by small ferry from Eira (next to restaurant Carrousel). It is a very nice boat trip and even better island where you can enjoy sunbathing (on beach or on rocks as you decide). It is a nice place to visit if you are comming on... More

I enjoyed spending midsummer here. There is a nice fire. The Island is, I can imagine, very beautiful at other times, too. There are beaches, a lot of nature. Connection is via ferry from the city center (look up the timetable online)
