In the late 1910s Hietaranta had been planned to be transformed into a harbor. The plans were however canceled after the representatives of the city monetary bureau visited the place and were attracted by the sandy site. The spot had previously been used for storing sand, and over time huge piles had spread to form a solid, sandy beach. Hietaniemi beach, commonly known as ‘Hietsu’, was established in 1929.
