- Not to be confused with Ekerö, the archipelago in Swedish lake Mälaren.
Ålands hav, the sea between Eckerö and Sweden, is narrow enough for nearly any vessel on a nice day.
By bus from Mariehamn, line 1, €4.40.
- Eckerö post- och tullhus (postal office and museum), Storby, AX-22270 Eckerö, ☎ , e-mail: email@example.com. The post and customs house of 1828, by Ludvig Engel and Carlo Bassi, is hugely oversize for the village, as it was built as a symbol of the Russian empire at the main mail route to Sweden. The building also hosts artists in residence.
- Hunting and Fishing Museum.
In summer this is almost a beach resort for Ålanders and has a holiday feeling, and a traditional beach style atmosphere. Tip: hire a canoe and paddle to some islands.
