Lyökki daymark

The Lyökki daymark is Finlands oldest still standing daymark and possibly the oldest still standing sea mark. I visited it in June 2018.

The Lyökki daymark is situated 20 km northwest of Uusikaupunki and marks part of the old Turku-Ostrobothnia shipping lane. It is easily reachable by kayak, with a 3 km crossing.

The Lyökki daymark was built in 1757 in stone and is 16.5 m high.

The island itself is fairly barren and has some restrictions for bird protection purposes.

Position: N 60° 56,075' and E 21°8,255'
