On Arholma, the cultural landscape has been maintained for hundreds of years and is still cared for in a traditional manner. The beacon was built in 1768 at the strategically important passage way to Åland and Russia. When shipping became less of a profitable trade, many of the houses here were turned in to popular hotels or hostels, for example Bull-August gård.
What used to be the secret military facility, Arholma Battery, is now a visitors center with a museum, accommodation and a restaurant.
At the Norrhamnen ferry jetty there is a grocery store.
