2. Ekenäs Archipelago National Park 

    

Ekenäs Archipelago National Park in the Gulf of Finland is a beautiful part of Nyland archipelago. The National Park is located in Western Nyland near the southern coast of Finland and it includes three out of the four archipelago zones: inner and outer archipelago, and the open sea. Almost 90% of the park consists of water areas.

The varied forms of the sea bed and the number of ship wrecks make the park an interesting destination for diving, almost round the year.
