Hi Romina, the main reason for these huge beaches is not so natural: the power company has a water power station by the river that leads the water of Lake Oulujärvi to the Sea. They consume more water for the power production during the winter and this makes the water level low in May.. later there will be more water..

The nature of the beach is quite rich: by the water all the fish arrives, pike, perch, even salmon is there. there is at least one otter and tens of different birds..

Samanlaisia ongelmia on Kiantajärvelläkin, kokonaisia lahtia on kuivilla kevät-talvesta, ahneita on nuo sähkö-optioilla elävät herrat...
