Hietarannasta suunniteltiin satama-aluetta 1910-luvun lopulla. Suunnitelma ei toteutunutkaan, kun rahatoimikamarin edustajat vierailivat paikalla ja ihastuivat paikalla olleeseen hietikkoon. Rantaa oli aiemmin käytetty hiekan varastointiin, ja ajan kuluessa valtavat hiekkakasat olivat painuneet kokoon ja levinneet ympäristöön, muodostaen kiinteäpintaisen hiekkarannan. Hietaniemen uimaranta eli Hietsu perustettiin vuonna 1929.

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.
