Destination information

There are two beaches in Lauttasaari: Lauttasaari beach also known as Kasinonranta in Hevosenkenkälahti and Veijarivuori beach in the eastern bay of the most southern point. Topical information on the quality of the swimming water is available here.

There are two small islets outside the southern tip, one of which can be reached on foot. You have to wade through water to reach the near-by island of Sisä-Hattu, because it is connected to the main island only when the sea water level is 30 cm below average. Sisä-Hattu is a popular place for fishing for trout and for bird watching. Lauttasaari bridge is a well-known spot for catching Baltic herring.

Myllykallio is a rocky forest area, which also features a section of the ancient shoreline of Littorina Sea. The observation tower on top of Myllykallio affords good vistas over the sea.             


Lauttasaari walk:
The Lauttasaari walking route goes via beautiful shores and Myllykallio. It is 6.7 km long. The route follows easy-to-walk paths along the waterfront. The section up Myllykallio is partially rocky without trails, so it is not suitable for pushchairs. You can walk the route in the order you want to or cover just a section of it. The mobile map and nature trail signposts are available on the Citynature website.

Cycle route around Lauttasaari:
You can cycle around the whole island along the shoreline. The length of the route is 10.3 km. The mobile map and nature trail signposts are available on the Citynature website.


There are no accessible services in the area but some of the roads and paths are easy terrain.
