The beloved Pihlajasaari island, also known by nicknames Pihlis and Rönsskär, is one of the most important summer oases for Helsinkians, who just love their sea and archipelago. For sunbathers the island offers both picturesque sandy beaches and plenty of rocks on the other side of the island, where everyone can find a peaceful spot. The ferry trip from the city takes only around 10 minutes.

In addition to delicacies, the charming Restaurant Pihlajasaari, in an old wooden villa, provides excellent views of the glistering waves of Gulf of Finland. The sea side terrace of Restaurant Pihlajasaari is one of the best summer terraces in Helsinki.
