Guide to Hanko

A celebrated summer retreat for Finland’s wealthy urbanites

Set amongst a backdrop of pine forests, charming harbours and New-England-style architecture on Finland's southwestern archipelago lies the idyllic town of Hanko.

This small town is a hugely popular hotspot for locals, who come here in their droves every June and July to spend their holidays before heading to their summer retreats in August.

The town’s heart comprises a beautiful marina, awash with clapboard wooden restaurants that serve up delicious cuisine, as well as hosting a number of parties that take full advantage of the midnight sun. One of the most popular hotspots is the yacht club, where you’ll find rooftop revelry and upscale dining throughout the summer season, where the smart set hang out and enjoy the scenic views from the balcony.

The town is eminently walkable, although cycling is a popular pastime here, with bike hire available in a number of locations. Cycling also enables visitors to truly explore this scenic outpost. Meander past venerable mansions – akin to Newport, Rhode Island’s summer “cottages” – and pine-clad forests, with stops at the beach where you'll find vast stretches of salmon-pink sands and gentle lapping waters that overlook the scenic archipelago.

Head to the town’s tennis courts, where myriad families spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying a few friendly games before retiring to the clubhouse for some refreshments. There is also a spectacular outdoor concert area nearby, which plays host to numerous live events throughout the summer.

Packed full of beautiful architecture, stunning sand beaches and picture-postcard views, Hanko truly is the perfect place to visit during your Finland luxury yacht charter vacation. If you are interested in a private crewed yachting vacation in the waters around Finland, view all superyachts available for Northern Europe yacht charters today and start planning your next vacation with a recommended yacht charter broker
