The caves of Jeremias
A huge natural stone formation known as the Caves of Jeremias is located near the beach. There is a car park opposite the path to the caves. The caves of Jeremias are located in a nature reserve. Please respect nature and neighboring neighbors by staying on marked trails. Doing so will not endanger yourself either.
The caves in Jeremiah have vertical rock cliffs as well as deep, unmarked grooves and cracks, so walking in the area can be dangerous, especially on slippery roads. As the name implies, there are several caves of different sizes in the natural stone formation, but the cave sites are also not marked. If necessary, guided tours of the caves are organized by Kustavi’s guides. The caves of Jeremias are one of the destinations on the Kustavi Nature and Culture Trail.
The car park is located across the road from the open cliff as seen from the path.
One story is that in the 18th century, when Finland belonged to the Kingdom of Sweden, the English navy arrived in Kustavi. The Engelsmanns wanted to find the Swedes staying in Tuulvesi and asked Jeremiah, who was living in Tönvik (opposite Pännäistenuori) at the time, a boat route to Tuulvesi. Even if he had gotten there by sailing through Iniönukuka, Jeremias deliberately advised the wrong route. The angry Englishmen returned to seek Jeremias, but he had fled to Mount Pännäinen. It was easy to walk on the mountain so that others could not see and gaze at the angry whispering angels who eventually had to leave Jeremias without being found.
