Why locals love it

Pihlajasaari is an island located just 10 minutes by boat from the mainland, accessible from both Merisatama and Ruoholahti (€6/ €3,50). It’s a popular getaway from busy city life for many locals. There's a beach on the island as well as beautiful rocks to sunbath or have a picnic.

Why you should visit it

Pack your swimming gear and sun lotion, along with snacks and a picnic lunch. There's also a restaurant on the island which serves lovely smoked fish from their own smokery and freshly baked Finnish doughnuts. You can also camp on the island (€15/ tent/ night).

Beautifull island near the center. For a picnic and a swim in the wild nature. To get there you will take a boat and you will see the archipelago where Helsinki is situated :)
