Helsinki Allas

Currently operating as a pop up Helsinki Allas features a garden, cafe and a relaxing terrace to chill out right next to the city center with amazing views over the South Harbour and Market Square. There is a chef cooking bbq food with a charcoal grill. You  also have a chance to take ride with the Finnair Sky Wheel which is located at the Helsinki Allas area.

The big plan for Helsinki Allas is to open up in the summer 2016 as a year round playground offering relaxation for body and soul. There will be two full size pools, sauna and space for sunbathing. The spa experience will be fulfilled with fresh coffee, treats and events.

hernesaaren ranta – hernesaari beach

Cargo container restaurants and cafés, a huge terrace and small concerts. Hernesaari Beach is filled with lovely street food eats. The area has potential to become the favourite spot for the locals to spend their summer nights and weekends enjoying beach and sun combined with wining and eating. It will also be a perfect place for the visitors to get an industrial Helsinki seaside experience. Hernesaari: Munkkisaari quay right next to the beach area welcomes thousands of cruise passengers arriving Helsinki with amazing cruise ships.

Hernesaari Beach is easily accessible from the city or from the sea. Local bus 14 operates to Hernesaari and there is a free shuttle bus from Helsinki city centre to Hernesaari Beach during summer time. The shuttle operates every day from 5pm to 10pm every hour (5pm, 6pm etc…) from Ateneum and back from Hernesaari Beach every half past an hour 5.30pm until 1.30am (5.30pm, 6.30pm etc…). More info here in Finnish. The best way to go there is of course by bike.
