Reposaari, Räfsö, Räpsöö, Reffzöö – the island is known by many names. It has a lot to offer to open-minded travellers. The island’s charming old buildings, the multicultural Reposfääri festival and the exciting fortress are only a few of the experiences available. During the summer season, you can explore Reposaari on walking tours organised by Visit Pori.
When someone from Pori falls in love, they take their sweetheart to Kallo to admire the smooth sea-kissed rocks. When someone from Pori suffers a break-up, they go back to Kallo to watch the storm beat down on the same rocks. Kallo is a small rocky island that can be reached by driving straight along National Road 2, even all the way from Helsinki.
Next to Kallo is Uniluoto, a seaside neighbourhood where you can sense both the calmness and the restlessness of the sea. Walking on the streets of Uniluoto, it’s hard not to think about moving there. What would life be like there? Would I finally be happy?
In addition to the Yyteri sands, you can go to the Yyteri silt area, renowned in particular for its popularity among wading birds. The silt area is located three to five kilometres from the Yyteri sands, depending on where you start the journey. You can also hike a longer distance, with part of the route extending all the way to the Bothnian Sea National Park area.
There is a separate section of the beach for dogs at Merisatamatie 13. There is a widened parking place for visitors opposite to the Port of Pori building, on the other side of the road. The path to the beach starts next to the parking expansion. You can also come to the beach using the local buses 31, 31K, 37 and 40M. The other beaches in Yyteri are a dog-free zone.
Munakari is an island off the Yyteri beach in Pori, and it is part of the Bothnian Sea National Park. When the sea is lower than usual, you can walk to Munakari along a sand bar known as Munakarin säikkä, about half a kilometre long. Access onto Munakari and the isthmus leading to it is, however, prohibited between 1 April and 31 July due to bird nesting
Bathing in the waves of the Bothnian Sea, Pori’s northernmost district, Ahlainen, is an enchanting combination of nature, sea, beautiful buildings and lively village life. Culture and nature come together at Ahlainen. There are slightly over 1,300 permanent residents, but the population more than doubles when summer residents return to the village.
