The Guardian ranked Yyteri on of the 10 best beaches for families in 2016
"Picture a beach holiday and Finland is not the first country that springs to mind, yet this Nordic country is home to one of the finest stretches of sand in northern Europe. Yyteri beach, near the city of Pori, is a 5km stretch of powder-soft sand backed by dunes and pine forests. In late summer, the shallow waters of the Baltic are surprisingly warm and the offshore breezes attract surfers from across Scandinavia." writes the Guardian in 12.2.2016 issue, you can read the article also online here.

Yyteri's nature trails - relax and experience exotic nature
The Yyteri nature trail is located in the area between the famous Yyteri beach and the Bothnian Sea National Park. The trail along the seashore takes you past dunes, the meadows and sandflats popular with birdlife, reedbeds and coastal forests. On the path that follows the border between shore zone and forest, walkers can unwind or enjoy being with their companions. If you want to, you can also stop off at a viewing platform to watch for instance the Marsh Harrier gliding over the reedbeds or the striking-looking Common Shelduck resting near the waterline. The view from the Sannannokka bird tower in the evening sunlight is amazing and the chance to experience the peace in nature that you find there is unique.
