Ragrundet is a small island located in the archipelago of Åboland-Turunmaa, Finland Proper, Finland. The island is just 0.5 hectares in size and is situated in the Baltic Sea, approximately 10 kilometers south-west of the city of Turku.

The island is home to a single lighthouse, which was built in 1922 and stands at 16 meters tall. The lighthouse has a white tower, a red lantern room, and a black roof. The light is automated and runs on solar power, with a range of 6 nautical miles.

Ragrundet is a popular destination for boaters and visitors who enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Finnish archipelago. The island has no permanent residents but is used as a summer retreat by some locals. There are no shops, restaurants or other amenities on the island, but visitors can enjoy picnics and walks, as well as swimming and fishing in the surrounding waters.

Access to the island is by boat only, with no regular ferry service. Private boats can moor at the island's small harbor, which has space for a few boats at a time. The island is also visible from the Turku Archipelago Trail, which is a popular route for cycling and hiking in the area.
