Santalahti has two wonderful nature trails. The trails are well-marked for safety.

The Santalahti Forest Track, which is about 2,6 kilometres long, encircles the almost-untouched central part of Mussalo Island and its western beach.

The Santalahti Sea View Track winds through the island to a rocky archipelago on the southern coast, from which a sea view of the Gulf of Finland’s archipelago opens up. When the weather is good, you can even see Hogland on the Russian side. The length of the trail is about 1,8 km

The Kotka-Hamina region also offers three national parks, two of which are perfect for hiking: Valkmusa National Park in Pyhtää and Repovesi National Park in Kouvola.
