Molpehällorna, or the island of Moikipää is made up of several smaller islands that have grown together. The island is composed of young leaf forests, reeds, and overgrown maze-like formations that are made up of a number of different gulfs. There is an ancient coastguard station on the island that currently functions as a wildlife center. It is a one-storey building with a watch tower that rises above the tree tops and which has spectacular views of the sea and across the island. The island has a roughly one kilometer long highly diverse nature trail. In the yard of the wildlife center there is an outhouse and a campfire site, amongst other services.
