Nice water, many piers where you can jump in. Easy access, but no beaches so not very good for small kids.

It may be a little off the beaten track, but if you're coming to Finland for the first time and fancy getting out of the city and seeing what makes a finn tick then pleeeeease make the effort to go and see Kaitalampi. You won't be disappointed. To me this is one of the most beautiful spots on the earth. I can, and have on many occasions whiled away hours just sitting by the lake contemplating my navel, breathing in the clean country air, grilling sausages and swimming in the clear fresh water. Take the 345 or 346 bus from Helsinki city centre and in less than an hour you will be transported from urban bedlam to country idyll. It is the perfect place for families, You can take a picnic or grill your own food on one of the three big public barbecues here, do a spot of fishing or if you are an energetic type, take a hike around the totally unspoiled forest. If you're coming in the late summer or autumn then the berry picking and mushrooming opportunities are endless. Everything grows here in abundance from blueberries to raspberries to forest strawberries. It is quite possible to take a walk around the forest and come back stuffed to the gills for free! This is not a tourist hotspot at all, so very few people who come to Finland even know it exists but it is a favourite place among finns. It's very hard to describe in words what makes this place so great and I can only upload one photo as all of mine are too big! But if you do one thing on your holiday in Finland, make it a trip to Kaitalampi for a taste of the REAL Finland.
