On the big and green island the wildlife conservation area on Koskäret and Koskärshalsen is the most popular excursions. Here you have a chance to combine a refreshing bath at the long shallow sandy beach with a rejuvenating forest walk. There are two cabins for rent here, you'll need a boat to get here or snowmobile or skis in winter if the ice permittes.

The bay is appreciated by boaters for its wind-protected location and the nice bath facilities. On the walk from Per-Steel bay is Laxskäret. Here you can see how a fishing cottage of the elderly cut looks, both internally and externally. 

Sauna and toilet is available.
