7. Myllysaari Island + Kimpinen Outdoor Trail

A diversal beach day

The Myllysaari Swimming Beach is popular especially on summer’s warmest days. There are various swimming places in the area: a beach, an outdoor swimming pool and a kids’ beach near children’s playground. Besides a beach trip, there are also other activities to do in the area. It is possible to play volleyball and basketball, and get active in a small parkour park. During summer, also group exercise classes are arranged on lawn.

Address: Myllysaarenpolku
Via the long stairs starting from Ainonkatu to Mäkikatu, it is possible to get to the Kimpinen Outdoor Trail. You don’t have to be a runner to use the path, since you can sit down on the benches along the route on Lake Saimaa’s side.

While sitting on the benches, the view opening behind the trees is special, since this viewpoint is located on a high hill.
