The island also has many historical signs from the Finnish war era and some good natural viewing places.

4. Fasta Aland

A large bay, Lumparn, on the eastern side of the island can be visited for a pleasant view as it was formed by a crater that hit the place nearly 100 million years ago. Apart from that, the coastline is also very beautiful.
