Mariehamn with its beautiful location between two sea inlets offers everything from a dip in the sea to restaurants, entertainment and museums.
Being close to everything is one of the advantages of the small town. Mariehamn is easy to discover on foot, and there are several walking trails and city walks to choose from. Take the shoreline promenade up to Badhusberget Hill to get a bird’s eye view of Mariehamn. Or play a round of disc golf at Badhusparken.
Mariehamn’s eastern side is the place for swimming and sunbathing all day long. Here you’ll find Nabben, with its gently sloping sand beach and charming seaside setting. The sand beach at Lilla holmen is also family-friendly, with its swimming pier, pirate ship, rabbits and peacocks. Mariebad swimming centre and outdoor pools at Hotel Arkipelag and Cikada are good choices for those who prefer tiled swimming pools instead of sandy beaches. The town square is the natural meeting place with a playground and park. Visit the outdoor market, or borrow fun giant yard games, available from spring to autumn.
Stroll along the Torggatan pedestrian street and go shopping, visit the Maritime Quarter, one of the museums or a cosy café.
Good restaurants, bars and food stands are always near. Some offer singer-songwriters, dj’s and live music, while other invite to activities, such as adventure golf. The block at Nygatan/Strandgatan is called Lilla Torget, the little square. Indigo Restaurant & Bar, Dinos Bar & Grill, Kino Nightclub and The Calypso Bar all serve good drinks in the oldest buildings in town.
