Yyteri is located about 17 kilometres (11 mi) away from the centre of Pori, bordering the Baltic sea. Yyteri is not an urban district, instead it is mostly like a holiday resort. In 1965 Rolling Stones played a gig in Yyteri.
Yyteri is most famous for its beach, which stretches for about six kilometres, and is very popular among both local people and people from elsewhere in Finland.
The beach is one of the longest in Finland and all of Nordic countries, and has also many distinctive dunes. The dune area is unique in Europe because of its size.
As well as the beach, Yyteri also has a spa, hotels and a restaurant. An 18-hole golf course is located in the Yyteri area and there are also many other outdoor activities including surfing, beach volley, riding and over 30 kilometres (19 mi) of hiking routes.
Bus routes operate daily between Yyteri and the centre of Pori.
