Village on a beautiful isthmus

Dragsfjärd was merged with Västanfjärd and Kimito in 2009. Named after Lake Dragsfjärden, the village locates in the southwestern part of Kemiönsaari, surrounded by a beautiful archipelago atmosphere.

The church village of Kärra is located on a beautiful isthmus surrounded by pine trees between Lake Dragsfjärden and the bay.

Built in the 16th century, Dragsfjärden’s church is surrounded by an idyllic 20th-century church village, and its milieu is defined as a nationally significant environment. Locals are also delighted by the summer restaurant where you can enjoy the beautiful lake view.
