Cruise naked and/or bannish tan lines at Helsinki's gay beach
Just a quick boat ride off the mainland, the eastern half of Pihlajasaari is Helsinki's nude sunbathing area, with its own gay sub-section that's as cruisey as you want it to be. Ferries go every 15 to 30 minutes from the end of Laivurinkatu, next to Cafe Carousel.

    Just spent a chilled out afternoon in this pretty little island. Definitely worth a visit and only 5.50 euros for the ferry.

    Easy to find. Take the boat just at the café Carusel, 5,50 Euro per adult, round-trip. Signs on the Island to the nude bath, just a couple minutes walk over the new bridge. Cliffs.
