The Isosaari Island is located South of the garrison island of Santa Clara and was first opened to visitors in June 2017. Earlier, the island was used by the military and was closed to civilians. It takes half an hour to get to the island from the Helsinki Market Square by boat, and two ferries operated Suomen Saaristokuljetus Oy run every hour in the summer season. There are two sandy beaches, a sauna, a nine-hole golf course, and a restaurant with a terrace, offering a splendid view the fortress of Suomenlinna and the mainland.

 

The island visitors can see the grave of the English sailor George Quinell, who died during the Crimean War (when the Santahamins were firing at British ships). In the center of the island there is a monument to the victims of the Civil War of 1918. More than 300 prisoners were killed in the concentration camp located on the island, nost of them are buried on the island of Santahamina.


Starting on Juhannus Day in 2017, the island can be visited on private boats.
