Islands of Helsinki # 01

One of the joys of living and working in Helsinki is having the Baltic right on our doorstep. We are fortunate also in that there are so many islands close by. One of our favourites is Kaunissaari (the Helsinki one). There is another Kaunissaari quite close to Kotka that also rates high on places to spend time – the journey there is a bit longer though :/

We recently spent a few hours circumnavigating the island on foot.

The best way to get there is by waterbus – but hurry their season ends on Sunday 😦

* Disclosure: we have a boat and spend pretty much every spare moment we can visiting islands and harbours around Finland.
