4. Utö

Utö’s barren landscape never stops to charm friends of the archipelago, birdwatchers and others who appreciate life far out at sea. • The island’s position has always been significant for maritime pilots and the military. Utö monitoring post closed in 2005, but the military still use two areas on the island. • Are you a bird watcher? You will find many other likeminded individuals on the island. • There are plenty of accommodation alternatives, from hotel rooms to cottages. A restaurant is open during the summer. The shop is open throughout the year. • MS Park Victory’s wreck is popular for divers. The ship sank in 1947 shipping coal from Virginia to Turku. Ten sailors drowned but 38 were saved. The wreck lies at a depth of 27–36 meters. The tops of the masts stand 8 meters underwater. Tea Karvinen
