A surprising place behind the noise barrier of the Vuosaari harbour with a wide view to the sea, some closeby islands and reed areas. It is possible to spot White-tailed Eagle and Osprey fishing at the sea and families of Mute Swan and Whooper Swan are a regular sight in summer.

Common Gull , Great Black-backed Gull , Black-headed Gull , Lesser Black-backed Gull , Caspian Tern , Common Tern and Arctic Tern fish in the area and gulls often patrol the road itself too. Northern Wheatear is also a regular species. Common Teal , Mallard , Goosander , Red-breasted Merganser , Common Goldeneye , Great Crested Grebe , Red-breasted Merganser , Canada Goose and Barnacle Goose are among the water fowl that have been seen there and you can spot birds on the closeby islands as well. Some lucky birders have spotted Bearded Tit on the closeby reeds too.



There's a parking place close to the beginning of the road. It's also possible to walk and cycle there.
