Destination information

The flora and fauna on the island are diverse: natural coastal forests, herb-rich groves, ponds, flat outcrops and coastal meadows, which are a protected biotope. In places, the vegetation is hugely versatile, particularly in the south-eastern part of the island.

Many waterbirds nest on the island’s shores and islets. Seurasaari’s southern shore with its islets is a nature reserve; between 1 April and 15 August landing there and getting any closer than 25 metres to an islet is prohibited.

Topical information on the quality of the swimming water is available here.
