Kalajoki Marina is a high-class, maritime boating and recreation centre being built in the Hiekkasärkät tourist centre. The aim is to build the most versatile, 150-seat guest marina in the Bothnian Bay area, with a target draught of at least 3 m.
The Kalajoki Marina will contribute to the awareness, growth and internationalisation of tourism along the entire Finnish coastline and strengthen the position of Hiekkasärkät as one of the most attractive maritime tourist centres in the Nordic countries. The Marina area is targeted for quality holiday homes, hotels, restaurants and new maritime activities. Modern holiday homes have already been completed and the guest marina will be completed towards the end of 2025.

Marina’s building projects – completed and under-construction
Marina's holiday homes are unique and high-quality. Designed for discerning tastes, the apartments and villas will appeal to those looking for a remote workplace close to nature, as well as families and couples.
The spectacular Marina Resort offers scenic apartments and family apartments in an architecturally stunning building by the sea. The three alternative colour schemes of the interiors draw their colour scheme from the surrounding coastal landscape. Residents can also choose to purchase an architect-curated furniture package, thoughtfully customised to match the interior colour schemes. The Marina Resort comprises a complex of four apartment buildings, the 1st and 2nd of which were completed in 2022 and 2023 respectively, with the third section under construction and the fourth about to enter pre-marketing.
The Villa Resort will be built on the plot next to the Marina Resort. The area will consist of semi-detached and townhouse apartments, all located in a prime location close to the marine nature. The Villa Resort is a unique investment for those who dream of a holiday home in nature, as well as for those looking for a seasonal rental apartment. Some of the apartments have been completed.
Kalajoki Beach & Golf Resort
The Beach & Golf Resort offers something for both the quality holiday home seeker and the holiday home investor. The apartments in the newly completed property have been designed as stunning detached houses, each with its own carport attached to the apartment with electric car charging facilities. Each apartment has a south-facing balcony. The balconies offer a magnificent sea view or a view towards the beautifully lit pond.
Marinan Portin Kapteeni
Marinan Portin Kapteeni, currently under construction, offers quality accommodation in a prime location close to the sea and sandy beach. The apartments are designed so that almost all of them have a view of the sea and from the balcony, you can admire the magnificent sunsets of Kalajoki. We focus on quality and design the apartments with a focus on uncomplicated leisure. The owner can also put the apartment up for rent through a pool operator and earn rental income when not using the apartment. Apartments on pre-market from 6/2022.
The new marina serves boaters and tourists
International events, ease of boating and a fascinating Marina atmosphere for all.
Kalajoki Marina attracts coastal boaters as well as domestic and international tourists. In addition to a great marine experience, the marina offers visitors a comprehensive range of new services and a fascinating marina atmosphere. Both the Marina's own services and the year-round services of the Hiekkasärkät Tourist Centre are within walking distance.
The new marina and boating centre in the Keskuskari area will offer new ways of enjoying the sea through a range of well-thought-out service concepts. In addition, Kalajoki's stunning nearby archipelago and the unique, historic Kallankari Islands will be within easy reach of boaters.
Cooperation with other ports in the Bothnian Sea region on the Finnish and Swedish sides will increase Marina's attractiveness to boating tourists. International atmosphere and events are in store!
