Didn't stay at Nalikari but looks to be ok, situated right by the beach. As for Oulu a great place to visit, everything in Finland more expensive than the UK but still worth a visit. Also, only approx 3 hours from santa land which is definitely worth seeing.
Quite popular so a reservation in summer time is recommended. Clean sanitary facilities, evening sauna included, well taken care pitches, friendly staff. Everything just works and that makes the visitor happy. This is one of my favorite camp sites.
We spent one night here in late April. The cottage was oldish from outside but thanks to some renovations the facilities inside were fine. The spa, beach and a sportshall were within walking distance. Would stay again.
I really enjoyed my stay at Nallikiari Holiday Village. The neighbourhood is so calm and quiet, the whole village is situated close to the sea, beach, forests. I stayed in a mint mökki house, the accomodation was amazing, the bedding was clean, the toilet was tidy... everything was just sparkling clean! The houses aren’t really close to each other, so you can feel the privacy. Also, when I woke up, my yard was surrounded by some ducks and a squirrel! As I told you, you can really feel the nature while staying at Nallikiari. If I had known that my stay there will be so amazing, I would have booked the cottage for a longer term!
Nice pitches of which you can choose from different price and sizes the one that suits your needs. Vig Plus: Evening Sauna included! Grill foos available by the reception restaurant and a buffet lunch. Clean sanitery. I can recommend.
The beach is nice, staff is nice and welcoming. The campingarea is not do good. The grass havent been cut for weeks, there are garbage bins near the tenting area that is over filled and not emptied for a while. Around tenting areas there are garbage around. To this cost we expect a lot more.
A two-bedroom villa was the perfect alternative to a hotel on our driving tour. The villa had a very functional kitchen and a comfortable living room. Plus its own sauna. And a deck for enjoying the long June evening when the weather permits. (Be aware of the plentiful mosquitos.) Our villa was a short walk to the beach and an easy walk to the restaurant at Nallikari. Bedrooms are on the small side and there is no air conditioning which usually isn’t a major problem.
Many of the restroom facilities were closed, though and it was raining, so it was a bit bummer. This is a good stay, when there is a total lack of hostels in Oulu for some reason. Could be a little bit more affordable, though. Local bus stop is near the camp ground and the other end of the line is somewhere.... not next to places like the railway station or the central bus station.
The new villas were really modern and clean and had everything we needed for our one night stay with 3 small kids. Even a sauna (!) that we unfortunately had no time to use. The beach is really close, maybe 200 meters away and it was ideal for children as it's super shallow. Though the whole holiday village was almost fully booked during our visit on a Saturday end of July the are was really quiet and calm.
We stayed with a big caravan. Easy to drive in and park the caravan. Nice and clean servicehouses. The camping is near the beach and spa. Really nice beachpromenade. Peaceful place. We loved the place.
