Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Island has an old fishing village, some summer homes, an old schoolhouse, a customs checkpoint and not much else. Quiet and "away from it all," especially if you can swing an overnight.

If you can get out there you will not be sorry. Delight at every hand. Unspoiled. We went in our yacht.

My first trip to this beautiful island. We went there using our own boat but I believe there is also a public transportation available. There is a small grocery store and Cafeteria where you can buy coffee, ice cream etc. Lot of charming houses, church and old school, but the view... oh my God!! Don’t miss the place in summertime.

The cottages each have a sauna and the smoke sauna is not to be missed. The hottest sauna I have been in. A good time for a large group.

Less than 20 people leave permanently on this remote island - remoteness means a two hour free ferry ride from the Kotka harbor. There is only one grocery store and a couple places to buy coffee and ice cream on the island but you definitely don't go there for shopping! You can stay overnight but don't expect a start hotel accommodation. The trip itself is an experience, especially if it is a windy day. In summertime local fishermen sell salmon almost directly from the see. You can swim, sun bath and enjoy the scenery and quietness.

It is far away, at the edge to aghipelago. Interesting place, used to be independent community (nowadays part of Kotka). There is the village, one shop/kiosk, and boarder control point.
It takes on day trip. Take photos, envoy the trip, se open sea.
Difficult part: find the boat schedule. Check if you can get food or take your own with you. Enjoy.
