When kids get to choose the beach
Plagen is the favourite beach for families with children. The beach is shallow and child-friendly. When there are southerly winds the water is often warm. On this popular beach you can find the unique water carousel in 50-60 cm-deep water. There is also a playground, beachvolley, minigolf, sup, 10 beach huts, a toilet and a café.
In Hangonkylä there is a bathing hut suitable for people with disabilities. The hut is in use during the summer months. Next to it is a small sandy beach, where the water is often warm during northerly winds. Nearby there is also a supervised diving tower, which is open daily in the summer. On the beach there are two beach huts, one of which is suitable for people with disabilities.
