The lighthouse and harbour basin of Kylmäpihlaja on a sunny summer's day.

The wind and sea have scarred the island of Kylmäpihlaja, right on the edge of the open sea. Despite its barren appearance, this island, dotted with sea buckthorn bushes, is teeming with life, especially during the bird nesting season.

The lighthouse, completed in 1953 in Kylmäpihlaja, was the last lighthouse in Finland to be built as an occupied lighthouse and also served as a pilot station. The lighthouse tower rises 36 metres above sea level. The tower has an observation deck with a magnificent view of the open sea.

The lighthouse has hotel rooms and, in addition to accommodation, the island offers restaurant, café, meeting and sauna facilities. The island also offers accommodation in scenic huts.

The Kylmäpihlaja lighthouse is open daily during the summer and by reservation for groups also in May and September.

A peaceful guest harbour is sheltered by the breakwater of the Coldbreak. There is no berthing fee for those travelling by private boat during day visits. There is a grill area on the island for your own use.
