Helsinki is seldom associated with beaches, but in summer the temperature is high enough to allow people to tan for a bit and splash about in the water. Hietaniemi Beach is very popular with the locals in the summer months and while it can't compare to the likes of Riviera Maya, there are some fn activities that you can do here, like beach volleyball and swimming (when the water temperature is decent).

If you are staying in Helsinki for a short while only, visiting Hietaniemi probably shouldn't be among your priorities, but if you're staying for more than a couple of weeks in summer and you're bored, it's not a bad place to spend a few hours at.

Hietaniemenkatu, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
