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.

The beach, the sun, the atmosphere. The bunnies and birds and of course the playground! My kid enjoyed and so did I.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

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.
