Merimasku, hugged by the Baltic Sea, offers an escape from the brimming city life. The area is dotted with beautiful meadows and golden fields along the Archipelago Ring Road. Merimasku offers an opportunity to add a sense of leisure into your daily life.

Well-connected life in the archipelago

Merimasku is located on the coast, about 10 kilometers drive away from the center of Naantali. The area stretches from the northern part of the Isle Otava to almost one hundred smaller islands, six of which are permanently inhabited. Back in the history, Merimasku was an independent municipality, but in 2009 it became part of Naantali. The heart of Merimasku (Kirkonkylä) is located at the northern part of the Isle Otava, offering several services to its residents.

Merimasku is well-connected to the center of Naantali through the Isle Luonnonmaa and a bridge built in the 2000s. It takes approximately 20 minutes to travel to the center of Naantali with Turku region's public transport Föli, although a car, motorbike, or a boat to that matter, becomes handy when living in the archipelago. The provincial center Turku is located within half an hour drive from Hellemäki, which is one of the neighborhoods in the eastern part of the Isle Otava.

Serene nature, intriguing history, and a variety of services

The area is surrounded by charming cultural landscapes characterized by soothing meadows, grazing grounds, ample fields, and patches of forests. Residents enjoy the outdoor activities, and the new fitness stairs will surely provide a good cardio exercise. Yet, Merimasku is not just about nature! From the service side, it provides diverse day-to-day amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, a bank, and a library. Families are treated well with local Merimasku primary school.

Merimasku will charm residents who long for the closeness of nature and a peaceful living environment. Moreover, the center of Merimasku will attract the attention of those who appreciate history. Built in 1726, the Church of Merimasku is the sixth oldest wooden church in Finland still in use, adding a sense of roots to the area.

During the warmer months, the population of Merimasku almost doubles as the area is highly popular among summer residents. In addition, the ever-popular and all-time favorite of the domestic travel in Finland, the Archipelago Ring Road, passes Merimasku, bringing visitors to mesmerize the beauty of the archipelago.

Merimasku has a historical society Merimasku Seura Ry that aims to preserve the local culture and natural assets. We support all such initiatives and a sustainable archipelago too.
