HERNESAAREN RANTA

On Sunday, after sleeping in at the hotel, we walked over to Hernesaaren Ranta, or Hernesaari Beach. Walking slowly, and I mean very slowly (after all that dancing the night before), it took us about 30minutes. The walk is so beautiful along many little parks and pastel coloured buildings. Summer in Finland is incredible. Along the way we stopped at Löyly, Helsinki’s new public sauna and their stunning restaurant by the sea, and admired its exceptional architecture.

Hernesaaren Ranta is an outdoor seaside area, close to the city center with good transport connections. There are bars, several street food stalls, boat docks, lots of activities and concerts throughout the summer months and lounge chairs for relaxing on the beach. They also have a 10-person private sauna for hire on their Sea Pier. For more information, contact myynti@hernesaarenranta.fi.

 We enjoyed the sunny weather with some street food and ice creams from the vendors and lounged around for hours. A friend of mine said that Hernesaaren Ranta’s vibe makes you feel like you’re on holiday, and its so true – this completely new concept works so, so well. Mini vacation for the city folk. Nothing beats spending summer afternoons with your girlfriends by the seaside 🙂

Sunnuntaina, nukuttuamme pitkään hotellilla, kävelimme Hernesaaren Rantaan. Kävelimme hitaasti, ja tarkoitan erittäin hitaasti (kaiken sen edellisen illan tanssimisen jälkeen), ja matka kesti noin puolisen tuntia. Kävely on todella idyllinen, useiden pienten puistojen ja pastellinväristen rakennusten välissä. Suomen kesä on niin kaunis. Matkan varrella pysähdyimme Löylyyn, Helsingin uuteen ja upeaan yleiseen saunaan ja ravintolaan meren rannalla, ihailemaan sen ainutlaatuista arkkitehtuuria.

Hernesaaren Ranta on kesäpäivänviettoalue keskustan kupeessa hyvien kulkuyhteyksien päässä. Tarjolla on hyvää juomaa ja streetfoodia, venelaituri, aktiviteetteja ja konsertteja läpi kesän ja aurinkotuoleja rannalla rentoutumiseen. Hernesaaren rannalta löytyy myös 10 hengen tilaussauna, josta lisätietoja saat ottamalla yhteyttä myynti@hernesaarenranta.fi.

 Nautimme aurinkoisesta säästä ja katukeittiöiden herkuista ja jäätelöstä paistatellen päivää tuntikausia. Ystäväni mainitsi että tunnelma Hernesaaren rannassa on kuin olisit lomalla ja se on niin totta – tämä täysin uusi konsepti toimii loistavasti ja tunnelma on todella rento. Miniloma kaupunkilaisille. Mikään ei ole parempaa kuin viettää kesäistä päivää meren äärellä tyttöporukalla 🙂

    Hesinki feels so unreal since it’s raining in my town for the past two hours. And you don’t even want me to get started how the temperature is low. So, my question is how can I teleport to Helsinki? hahaha

    • 12th November 2016 / 5:48 pm

      It’s raining here in London as well and there is snow in Helsinki already 🙂
