    From Kalajoki venesatama (boat-harbour) goes tuesday to sunday at summer a boat to Maakalla. It usually goes at 15 o´clock and at July also at 12 o´clock.
    It´s a small village on island, where is more sunny days than in maincountry. They have been able to use their own laws since 1720, when king of Sweden (witch Finland was part of then) gave them the rights to make own laws. You can´t buy a cottage there, you must be born to family who has owned the cottage, and cottages stay at family.Only other way is to be a fisherman around there-then you might get a right to own a house. Cottages are very small, and have only one room, except priest house witch has two rooms. It´s smallest priest house ("pappila") in Finland.
    The church is used to weddings and other special things, and it´s very old. There´s a cafe and swimmingbeach, and bird-tower at island.Othervice you just have relax and enjoy the peace and silence!Boat-trip takes an hour, but it is worth it. At heavy wind it can´t go. I don´t know the price, since I was at wedding there, and we had whole boat booked.
    My cusin had a daughter in wheelchair and they managed to work it through, even if it´s not so easy there.They had to carry her over some bad rocks, but it went o.k.

    The best this in this place is the beach of course. One of the unique as it is a sand beach here and if you are lucky and there is sunshine as well you can hardly believe that you are only few hundreds of kilometres from the Arctic Circle.
