Varessäikkä Beach and Small-craft Harbour
The natural sandy beaches of Varessäikkä make an ideal place to spend a summer day or to observe the changing expressions of the sea in different seasons and times of day. The shallow waters and gently sloping beaches are also excellent for young children. A small point pushing out into the Bay of Bothnia holds a little observation tower resembling a lighthouse, which makes an great place for bird-watching, for example. The water quality at the beach is regularly monitored.
