With its 700 km long shoreline, Närpes is a genuine coastal region. Visitors should always make a trip to the archipelago. In the coastal villages there are old fishing posts, where visitors can admire beautiful, old fishing huts, the archipelago nature and of course the sea. In many places there are also local beaches, small summer kiosks and cafés and even an archipelago restaurant.
Imagine lying on a beach, listening to the seagulls and the lapping waves on a cloud free summer day, or watching the sun go down in the Bay of Bothnia on a balmy summer evening. Even in the winter there is a certain charm to the archipelago, when you can take a walk or cross country ski on the ice on a sunny day. Don’t hesitate to contact the tourist information for more information on the hot spots of the archipelago.
For those who want to admire the archipelago from the ocean, there is Gåshällan Nature station. The nature station, which has been restored from a former sea-watch station, is situated on a rocky island right by the ocean. The island has a very beautiful outer island nature with an abundant bird- and plant life. The forestry board rents the nature station to the association Naturstation Gåshällan rf, which offers accommodation-, meeting- and sauna services to groups, by reservation.
