Förby Marina in Särkisalo is located in the Finnish Archipelago Sea, in a popular summer holidaying area. It is easy to steer boats along the nearby route in the direction of Taalintehdas or Hanko, or towards the inner archipelago. The area’s excellent fishing waters have a wide variety of fish stocks. Next to the harbour is a swimming spot with a sandy beach, swimming pier and diving platform.
