There are regulations that limit the right of public access within nature reserves, national parks, and protected areas for animals and plants. The regulations have been drawn up to preserve the valuable natural world that exists within the particular reserve or protected area.
The Archipelago Foundation’s recommendations:
- Maintain a low speed.
- Avoid creating wake and waves that affect moored boats and bathers.
- Do not run dinghy with outboard motor or similar unnecessarily.
- Avoid jet-skiing, water skiing, and other noisy water games.
- There is a shortage of fresh water in the entire archipelago – Do not waste.
