Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, Helsinki

(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
At Pihlajasaari Recreational Park you can swim at sandy beaches or jog and hike through wooded areas. This island was once a villa resort with small cottages scattered throughout its forests and seafronts. Today the 26 hectare (64 acre) site attracts sun worshipers and active vacationers from all over the country. Visit the beach by boat and spend a day surrounded by diverse wildlife and colorful cottages, or swim in the clear sea. You can also camp at a designated area. If you're hungry, visit the restaurant inside a 19th-century wooden villa for some smoked Finnish salmon. Our Helsinki trip itinerary planner makes visiting Pihlajasaari Recreational Park and other Helsinki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • a 10-minute ferry ride from the paradise. Calm but still adequate services. In addition to kayaking, and access to the site with your own boat.

  • Very few tourists here, so you can enjoy nature in silence. There's a huge beach (with warnings about blue algae when we went there), a few bbq spots and a restaurant with few but delicious meals. I love it here.
  • Nothing really interesting in here apart from the Juhannus bonfire in the middle of summer
  • Naturebeaty island and restaurant service
  • Relaxed place. Several beaches, also a big nudist area.
