Fäliskäret is a smallish, about 400 meter wide and a kilometer long C-letter shaped island that belongs to the Rönnskär archipelago and is located by the open sea. Its 22-meter high bell tower-like lighthouse is the oldest wooden sea mark in Finland. The island’s two 19th century pilot stations are long one-storey wooden buildings. The island’s pilot-and coastguard station was built in 1967 and it is a two-storey brick house. It currently functions as a wildlife center and is managed by the Forestry Board.
