Örö is a beautiful and quiet island in the Archipelago National park. Ferry from Kasnäs takes an hour and you can stay in hotel, hostels, small cabins, in your boat or just camp. Lunch buffet, a la carte menu and harbor’s burgers and artisan pizza are decent. They even have an espresso machine! Örö has a fascinating history as a coastal artillery garrison and unique flora and scenery. The buildings are renovated with finesse. The sauna right next to harbor is brand new with a swimming dock and good public hours in the morning from 8 to 10am and in the evening from 4 to 8pm. You can either hire a bicycle or just stroll around the island. I am impressed how the friendly staff is doing the utmost to make your visit worthwhile. Örö is where you absolutely do not have to do anything. And the fact that you can see the legendary Bengtskär lighthouse in the horizon is just one more reason to visit the island again. Love it!
Nice place, but marina is not big enough for visitors
