    We went for the Helsinki Biennial 2021 and were totally blown away - we had the most amazing day strolling the island and exploring the exhibitions. Very unique and highly recommended!

    There is a specific nude beach area in the south tip of the second eastern island. Both descreet and more open spots for sun bathing.

    Tervasaari is a small island that can be reached on foot from Pohjoisranta.

    The island is named after a warehouse of tar exporters once located on the island. The warehouse is still left. Restaurant Savu operates here.

    You can also find Tervasaari Summer Theater and dog parks for small and large dogs, as well as a dog beach.

    The views are panoramic. Katajanokka and its icebreakers are best seen from here.

    Nice and beautiful little island just beside the Kaivopuisto park. You catch a ferry next to Cafe Ursula and the ride only takes a couple of minutes.

    The island is nice for a walk in the quite unspoilt nature and for seeing Helsinki from another angle.

    There is no cafeteria there, so be sure to bring something to drink or eat if you need it.
