Dog beach

The dog beach is at Merisatamantie 13. There is visitor carpark opposite the Port of Pori building, on the other side of the road. There is a path to the beach from the carpark. You can also come here using local buses 31, 31K, 37 or 40M.

Activities

There is plenty of sand and the sky is the limit to creativity. Yyteri offers countless activities for families with children and other light-footed visitors.

If you fancy a break from the beach, the Refresh Hotel invites you for a splash in the pools, or why not stop by the Yyteri lookout tower for some beautiful views? You can go birdwatching in the midst of beautiful nature, or book a boat tour and explore the sea.  You could also go to Adventure Park Huikee, where there are courses for everyone: the small and the tall, the experienced and the cautious ones.

There are also plenty of other activities in the area. There is something to do for everyone.

Hiking routes and trails

In addition to the Yyteri sands, you can head for the Yyteri wetlands, a particular favourite of waders. We do recommend the wetlands to all birdwatchers. The wetlands are around 3-5 km from the sand dunes, depending on where you start. You can also take the longer route and take in parts of the Bothnian Sea National Park. The route is marked with signs and the wetlands area is covered with duckboards. Thanks to the numerous platforms, access to the wetlands is easy. There are in fact several platforms and 15 viewing towers for nature enthusiasts along the route. Meanwhile, there are more than 30 kilometres of hiking trails.
