Merihaka (Swedish: Havshagen) is a seaside residential area in central Helsinki, partially built on reclaimed land. The area is located next to Hakaniemi, Kallio and Sörnäinen.

Despite its central location Merihaka is a quiet neighborhood due to traffic segregation, where traffic is diverted under the buildings on their own level. Merihaka offers magnificent sea views and great environment for outdoor activists. The area has its own boat-harbor, which is also hosting the legendary steam ship restaurant Wäiski (1911).

Merihaka is also close to Hakaniemi, which is known for its market hall. The area has a good selection of services including a grocery shop, restaurants, pubs and a sports complex. Transportation options are excellent and include busses, trams and the metro.
