It’s the most common beach in Oulu, not always the best place to swim, because people also go to rivers and lakes for that, which I personally think a better option. But the view is beautiful especially during sunset. Bus number 15 from city centre...More

This beach attracts thousands of sunbathers in the summer. It is located on the Hietasaari Island 30 minutes walk away from Oulu City Centre. There are a restaurant, a cafe, and a hotel. At the one end of the beach is a landmark Majakka (Lighthouse).

In our six days in Oulu, we came to this beach three times! Parking was super simple, the beach is wide and deep with plenty of room. The slope is incredibly gentle. I think we walked out a kilometer and still weren’t over my shoulders!...More

Big beach by the sea, sand bottom. Beach is great for families since it becomes lower slowly. Adults need to walk much further to be able to swim properly. Bathing huts, ice-cream kiosks and restaurants available. Spa, hotel and cottages next to the beach.
