Baggö Marina is a safe and green harbour in the archipelago of Ekenäs in southern Finland — only two nautical miles from the Helsinki-Hanko fairway and 1,5h from Helsinki by car. We are developing a full-scale centre with guest harbour, B&B, bistro, sauna and shop. Our belief is to operate in an environmentally friendly way in order to preserve a healthy sea and nature. Happiness lies with the little things in life — like watching the still sea, or enjoying a good toast on the dock. It's a lifestyle.
