To the Archipelago Without a Boat

Did you know it is possible to reach the archipelago without boat? Take a car trip, or why not cycle to the scenic village Bromarv, located approximately 36 kilometres outside the centre of Ekenäs or to Sandnäsudd in Snappertuna. Make sure to visit the beautiful beach Padva if you are in Bromarv or Sandis Archipelago Shop and Café in Sandnäsudd!

To further explore the archipelago, take the ferry to Skåldö and visit places like Kopparö and the idyllic guest harbour Sommaröstrand. Both places offer restaurant services, and Kopparö offers accomodation options. These locations provides you with the opportunity to experience and enjoy the archipelago life without needing to go by boat.

If you prefer walking, we recommend you to visit Ramsholmen-Högholmen, an outdoor area suitable for families in Ekenäs. Here you can admire the sea view from the sandy beach in Ramsholmen or enjoy the sound of the water against the cliffs of Högholmen.

Rent a Boat or Kayak

Enjoying the archipelago goes well with your own boat but also fantastically with a boat rental. There are opportunities to rent everything from SUP-boards to motorboats in Raseborg. Some excellent destinations for a boat trip are Jussarö, Älgö, Fladalandet and Modermagan in Ekenäs Archipelago National Park.
