Kotka Hotels: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Santalahti recreation area is many-sided. It is located beautifully by the sea in south-eathern Finland, the distance to capital Helsinki being only 136 kms. Santalahti is southern Finland's only 5-star camp ground offering full services to tent or caravan campers and at the same time renting out nice summer log houses/cottages with full amenities.
Cottages/log houses starting from 34 m2 have own electric sauna, dush, wc, dish washer, TV, radio, full kitchen equipment with even microvawe oven - still they have unique summer cottage feeling and you can feel to be in the middle of Finnish nature.
Santalahti area has also a golf ground fulfilling all the international requirements. It is a demanding 18-holed Kotka Golf. For those not knowing golf, there is minigolf available.
In the reception building there is a cafeteria that is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day; selling minor things like chips, soft drinks and beer, coffee etc.
A "real" restaurant, the Golf Restaurant serves food dishes a little further away.
Unique Qualities: The nice tiny yellow wooden building to grill/barbeque sausages or food. It is not warmed but you are safe from wind. The mild smoke smell is cosy.
Handy: If you have forgotten something or need otherwise to go to Kotka city to shop food, Kotka is only 5 kms away!
The wide sandy beach must be nice at summertime (we were there in April-May).
Address: Lomakylä Santalahti, Santalahdentie 150, 48310 Kotka, Finland
Directions: If you approach Kotka from any direction, it is easy to find to Santalahti. It is marked with a blue sign with the international camping site sign + other information.
