We really liked Pihlajasaari. Natures peace and beautiful beaches right next to the city. It is easily accessed from Ruoholahti with the ferry taking 15 minutes. Restaurant served delicious creamy salmon soup and finnish pancakes (pannari).

Pihjalasaari is certainly a must see in Helsinki if you wish to experience an authentic beach instead of crowded Hietaniemi beach. Good facilities for picnic, grill and barbecue and of course swimming. Just remember to check ferry schedule as it goes only once or twice...More

Nice park, where you can relax during the hot days in Helsinki. You can swim in the sea or rest in the nearby coffee shop and restaurant. Nice for a family walk in nature.

I usually visit Pihlajasaari a couple of times every summer, and whilst the mainland Helsinki might be somewhat overcast, the sun often seems to be shining on Pihlajasaari. The actual beach can get busy but the farther, slightly more remote corners and the rocky shores...More
