You probably don't think of Finland when you imagine your perfect beach holiday – but think again. Yyteri Beach is a gorgeous 6km stretch of fine white sand, surrounded by dunes, sea grass and pine forest. The extensive sand flats attract dozens of species of wading bird – often visible from the 30km of boardwalks and walking trails.
It's not just birds that flock to these parts. The calm, shallow waters are perfect for families with small children; strong breezes attract windsurfers in the north; and naturists are drawn to the southern end of the beach. In short, there's something for everybody at Finland's most popular beach resort.
