I am currently researching a story in Pori, Finland, a beautiful little city that is well known among Finns for two things: the Pori Jazz Festival that has taken place every summer in July– featuring world class acts like Santana and Stan Getz– and Yyteri Beach, often called the most beautiful beach in all of Scandinavia. However, there is little in the way of English language articles on Pori, except this one from GoScandinavia.about.com which reveals Yyteri beach to be a hot spot for nude beach enthusiasts.
Enjoy the exerpt below:
Yyteri Nude Beach in Pori, Finland, is one of the few beaches for nudism in Finland. With a length of 6 km, Yyteri Beach is one of the longest beaches in Finland, but a large part of the beach requires clothing.
You’ll find lots of dunes and sand along this beach area on Finland’s west coast. Yyteri Nude Beach itself is a smaller section of the beach. It’s a unisex nude beach.
You can find this nude beach near the town of Pori, on the west coast of Finland. Pori is about 1.5 hours west of Tampere, 2 hours north of Turku, or a good 3 hours northwest of Helsinki. Take a look at the map of nude beaches in Finland to see where to find Yyteri Nude Beach. A direct bus connects the beach to the city center of Pori.
There’s an annual frisbee tournament at Yyteri Beach. It takes place in July and attracts quite a crowd each year. The area’s recreational activities for visitors include camping, surfing, minigolf and golf, volleyball, and tennis.
