We decided with a friend of mine to take a day trip from Helsinki to Hanko and Tammisaari, which turned out to be mostly about the food. Prior to the trip I was trying to google some of the local sights, but the recommendations were mostly along the lines just walk around, check the villas in Hanko, and some boating stuff. I didn’t have my boat with me at that time, so we just ended up walking around and sitting in cafes. 🙂
First we arrived to Tammisaari and wandered around aimlessly.
After the walk we went to the cafe called Voffeli ja kaffeli and had waffles with rhubarb jam and cream with tea. It was so good!
Then we drove to Hanko while it poured rain. We just hoped that it’d end by the time we arrived in Hanko.
In Hanko we stopped in Neljän Tuulen Tupa to have a piece of cake.
After walking in Hanko for a couple of more hours we ended up having dinner in restaurant Origo, which had really good food, but we should’ve stopped with the cheese plate because the desserts were pretty average even though they looked good.
After the meal we decided that we simply cannot move anymore, so we got into the car and drove back to Helsinki. 🙂 So unfortunately I don’t have any hints for Hanko or Tammisaari either unless you consider restaurant and cafe recommendations.
