Beach holiday destination by the sea
If you are considering a beach holiday in Finland, look no further than BestPark Varessäikkä! Varessäikkä is a small peninsula in the municipality of Siikajoki in Northern Ostrobothnia, quite close to Oulu, with an atmospheric sandy beach. The area of the peninsula, which extends into the Bay of Bothnia, is ideal for a summer holiday for the whole family. The beach is well suited for even the youngest members of the family thanks to the shallow bathing water, and the water quality is monitored regularly.
The three-plus caravan park is located near a quiet beach by the exotic archipelago. The boat harbour has a barbecue hut with a campfire, as well as a beach volley court. There are excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as running or walking. There is a long mountain bike trail that starts from the beach for experiencing the joy of cycling in nature. Services on the beach are provided by a local kiosk and the legendary Tyybäkinoja barbecue trailer where you can enjoy mouth-watering perch burgers and more. The coast is also home to historic buildings, such as a lighthouse-like tower that is ideal for birdwatching. There are several different species of waterfowl in Varessäikkä, and they can be easily observed in the open fields within walking distance of the caravan park as well.
Although the marshes of Varessäikkä attract hunters, berry pickers and hikers, the beach is still peaceful. Here you can listen to the splash of the waves and birdsong. Attractions in Siikajoki include three 18th-century churches, each less than a 45-minute drive from the park. Golf lovers are served by the 18-hole Raahentienoo golf course located about 11 kilometres from the caravan park.
Varessäikkä, located in the strait between Hailuoto and the mainland, is easily reached on a day trip from Oulu, which is about 60 kilometres away. From Raahe, you can drive to the site in just over 30 minutes.
