Pihlajasaari is a former villa island that is now a versatile outdoor recreation area. It still has a few old villas set amongst rocks, wooded areas, groves and beaches. Varying terrain, good location and services have made Pihlajasaari the most popular summer island in Helsinki. Sun worshipers are attracted by Pihlajasaari's sandy beaches. Several buildings on the island are protected.
Pihlajasaari is actually two islands (western and eastern parts), but these are connected by a light bridge. Pihlajasaari covers about 26 hectares.
