Beachlife

Hanko is the sunniest place in Finland, if not in the whole Baltic Sea area, and it offers beach experiences for everyone.

Hanko has 130 kilometres of shoreline, of which 30 kilometres consist of beaches with fine sand, and the rest of beautiful rocky coves. In the cliff labyrinths you are bound to find a quiet nook for yourself, your blanket, and your book. Breathe the fresh sea air and enjoy! You can choose a beach in the town centre or further away amidst nature. Locals choose their beach on the basis of the direction of the wind, as the temperature of the sea in the summertime may depend on the wind.
