West of Nagu is Korpo, a picturesque area dotted with 2,000 islands, islets, and skerries. There is far more sea than land in Korpo and locals have long made their living here in industries like fishing and maritime transport. It is a history that is proudly commemorated at the Korpoström Archipelago Centre, but Korpo also has plenty of new reasons to celebrate. The area has started to develop a reputation for fine dining, while events like the toe-tapping Korpo Sea Jazz are putting Korpo on the cultural map. Needless to say, Korpo is a popular tourist destination, especially in the warmer months. It is accessible by ferry from nearby islands or even by bus from Turku.
