I went here every day during my stay and enjoyed the beautiful fresh air and the stunning scenes across the water. It's a great place to go at any time but I enjoyed it for evening strolls.

Very nice natural island, for anyone looking for a quick relaxation while in Helsinki. The island(s) are accessable by boat that leaves from beside Cafe Carusel every hour. Round-trip ticket costs 7.50€
