Ekenäs Archipelago National Park (Swedish: Ekenäs skärgårds nationalpark, Finnish: Tammisaaren saariston kansallispuisto) is situated in the Ekenäs archipelago, in the Uusimaa region of Finland. It was established in 1989 and covers 52 square kilometres (20 sq mi). The park is maintained by Metsähallitus (Ministry of Forestry).

Most of the park's area is composed of rock islets near the open sea, and the water areas surrounding them. Landing on and using motorboats near the most important bird islands is forbidden from April 1 to July 17, to protect the nesting of aquatic birds.

The park can only be accessed by boat. Visitors without a boat can reach it by a water taxi.

Ekenäs Archipelago National Park received the European Diploma of Protected Areas on June 19, 1996. It is valid until June 2011.

  • Wonderful places for a trip with car. Boats to go from one island to another are free and you can quickly be lost in the nature. Be aware that there a lots of private homes and properties so you might end on someone's garden.
  • Love at fall also;0) recommended
  • National park is hard to access without your own boat. The ferries listed on the national park website are not running anymore, taxi boats are expensive 150€ round trip and it’s not clear where to go.
  • Absolutely stunning nature.
  • Went to Jusserö Island with a friend. Interesting little island with a 4,7km trail and a cafe. Boat ride there was nice also.
