This is one of the most popular beaches around Helsinki. It's very crowded during the day and at the weekends. I had the chance to be there at midnight. It was an excellent experience. The water was not really cold and people were swimming. The...More

We came here for sunset and truly it was the spot for it! If you are not bothered by some teenagers and lively people, enjoy it!

The Hietsu best beach near the city centrum. When we are lucky and get the sun shine this is the very famous beach for younger generation.
