Konungsskär form a sheltered excursion harbour near Korpoström, together with Västra Tvigölpan and Birsskär. From Konungsskär island you can get to the next island Birsskär along a boardwalk. The best places for mooring can be found from the north shore of Birsskär island. The south shore and western side of Konungsskär are other possibilities for mooring. Konungsskär can only be reached by boat.
Konungsskär and the nearby islands are barren and rocky. The old tenant farm is surrounded by a beautiful meadow, still grazed by sheep in the summer. After the end of permanent habitation in 1916, the island was used as a base for hunting and fishing trips. Famous Finnish Marshal Carl Gustaf Mannerheim also visited the hut in September 1926. Nowadays the wilderness hut can be used for temporary accommodation. History and life on the Konungsskär island can be explored on a nature trail (0,4 km) which circles around island.
National parks are nature reserves, whose key task is to safeguard biodiversity and enable people to enjoy and relax in nature on the terms of nature conservation. All national parks in Finland are managed by Metsähallitus.
