Peaceful
Jul 2020
The Lilla Holmen is just the cutest little island. At least two small bridges goes to the island. There are nice seating areas and a nice beach. There are animals too; bunnies and birds. The atmosphere was, at least during my visit, very peaceful and relaxing (not so many people around).

A hike path starts from Lilla Holmen and runs to the southern part of Marianhamina and then goes to the west side of the island where is partly wooden walkways by the shore. It is a lovely route and part of the Mariehamn Runt.

Small recreational island
Jul 2020
Lilla Holmen is close to the city center. It is an old excursion destination, especially suitable for families with children.

There is a public beach, a playground, and a tiny zoo where you can watch small animals.

Nice small beach
Aug 2019
We were there after peak season on a week day. It was very quiet and we had almost the whole beach for ourselves. Clean. But bring your own drinks. In this time of year everything is closed on Lilla Holmen.

Lovely place with lots of nature
Jun 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed coming here as hanging around the beach and forest. We even saw a deer in the bush! Unfortunately, the birds need much, much larger cages, and better care. Some of them seemed like they'd been pulling their own feathers in the stress of being surrounded by other, very loud birds.

Vibrant fauna
Jun 2019 • Friends
Lovely little island with a sandy beach and a couple of animal enclosures, mostly with rabbits. Of course it's a pity they are kept in cages for people's amusement, but other than that they seem to have it quite fine there. There are also tons of birds, mostly on an islet between Lilla Holmen and the main part of the park.

Nice park near the center
May 2019 • Solo
This park is located less than 10 minutes walk from the city center. Go across the bridge and you are there. I saw lots of locals sitting on the benches and children playing on the playground.

The best thing was the cute bunnies! You can pet them through the cage (if they let you do it) and feed them with grass.

Walk from the center of Mariehamn !
Sep 2018 • Couples
Mariehamn is a perfect place for families with children, as well as people who like to walk around a new place, and take in the ambiance..........
One neat place, just a short walk from downtown, is Lilla Holmes (“The Small Islet”), situated on the east side of the city. A small bridge takes you onto this beautiful islet, where there is plenty to do for children, and beautiful views, a beach, nearby restaurants to eat at, plus close to the big guest harbor, should you come by boat.......
Enjoy !

Birds park and beach
Jul 2018
It's a lovely little island in Mariehamn. There's birds walking around and a little wonderful beach. There's rabbits and a parrot house. I could spend hours there just to enjoy it's atmosphere, nature, birds and animals.

No peacocks but lots of other birds
May 2017 • Couples
We had an enjoyable day biking in Mariehamn and we encountered this beautiful wildlife and beach area. It was pleasant to stroll through the area and see swans, ducks, and HUGE rabbits. It is the season for baby waterfowl. There were great swings sturdy enough for adults at the playground. The wild flowers were blooming.

Very nice, specially for kids
Apr 2017 • Couples
I wanted to see the famous peacocks, but maybe because it was still April, and the weather was so cold and awful, they were not there yet. There are rabbits and a lot of different birds - perfect to take the kids. The park is on the coast, and there is a small/cosy beach.
