Kökar is an island in Åland.
Island ferry from Långnäs on the main island or Galtby on the Finnish mainland.
Easy to hire bikes but no public transport.
Kökar is one of the few islands inÅland with noticeable contours, showing picturesque cliffs to the east, now set a bit back from the coast. There is a very attractive little church, technically on a separate island but easily reached on foot from the ferry port by turning east. There are the ruins of an old monastery beside it. As is common in Åland, the belltower is near to but separate from the main church building.
Anton's Gasthem is nearest to the ferry and is well located for cliff walks and for the church. No breakfast but some facilities for self catering.
