Popular among campers, and rumors say that one of the most beautiful Espoo islands. Gåsgrund is a great destination for a day trip or overnight camping. You can enter the island by joining a public boat transfer, by your own boat, or even by kayak (from the north part of the island). You will also find family-friendly beaches and outdoor cooking shelters on the north coast. The island's terrain varies from rock beaches to bushy meadows and dry coniferous terrain.
