It's a lovely little island in Mariehamn. There's birds walking around and a little wonderful beach. There's rabbits and a parrot house. I could spend hours there just to enjoy it's atmosphere, nature, birds and animals.

We had an enjoyable day biking in Mariehamn and we encountered this beautiful wildlife and beach area. It was pleasant to stroll through the area and see swans, ducks, and HUGE rabbits. It is the season for baby waterfowl. There were great swings sturdy enough...More

This is a place with a relaxed athmosphere. Something for the whole family. Peacocks, canary birds, rabbits, beach, playground for the children and an ice cream kiosk. No entrance fee, easy to travel for the disabled or with baby pram. Worth a visit.

Note, if you don't like birds then stay away. Peacocks are running wild and there are many of them. Also other birds there are a lot. But atmosphere is nice. Beach is nice, suitable for kids. Worth a visit, either for a evening walk or...More

This is a nice peaceful place for a stroll with a lovely beach - but I am not so sure about the animal/bird exhibits though. The peacocks are certainly beautiful but the cages are very small.
