Yyteri Beach is a magnificent 6-kilometre stretch of golden sands on Finland’s west coast. It looks out over the chilly waters of the Gulf of Bothnia, which merges with the Baltic Sea at its southern end. Backed by extensive sand dunes, and woodland beyond, the beach at Yyteri has a wild feel.

This beach resort is one of the most popular summer destinations with Nordic residents, thanks to its position between Yyteri Nature Trail and the Bothnian Sea National Park. The trail follows the seashore and takes you past some of the highest sand dunes in Europe. On the way, you encounter meadows, sand flats and coastal forests.

This shallow, sandy beach is safe for young children. Summer activities include surfing, beach volleyball and numerous other water sports. The water temperature can reach a comfortable 20-Celsius, sometimes even warmer, while a discreet unisex nudist area offers naturists a chance to commune with nature.

The centrally located Bikini Bar is a focal point for activities day and night at Yyteri. This iconic little wooden structure has plenty of wooden terraces to look out over the beach and enjoy some refreshments.

In addition to the safe bathing beach zone, the area is teeming with birdlife and coastal forests. If you are a birder, be sure to visit the Sannannokka viewing tower and prepare for some spectacular sightings at sunset – it goes down at 22:50 on June 19, having risen at 03:54 that same day (amounting to 18:56 hours of daylight).

The main Yyteri Beach Resort is located about 20 kilometres northwest of the main regional centre of Pori, using routes 2 and 2652. If you plan to use public transport, buses operate daily schedules between Yyteri and Pori town centre. After you at arrive at Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport, the distance by road to Yyteri is around 260 kilometres.

There are many different accommodation options around the beach ranging from tents to caravans, holiday homes to modest cottages, and some luxury villas that accommodate up to 10 visitors.
