Raintsaari is an esker island whose rocky areas, spiky in places, offer great views over the waters of Luonteri. There is a sandy bar jutting out into the lake to the west of the island.

Raintsaari emerged from underneath the continental ice sheet during the Yoldia Sea phase around 11,300 years ago. A Stone-Age dwelling and cairn from the Early Metal Age have also been found on the island. The cairn is a fairly oval shape and consists of rather large stones on top of and around a smaller rocky mound. The cairn is 2.5-3.0m in diameter and half a metre tall.

Raintsaari is an island destination that can be reached by boat in summer. There is a pier for small boats on the western shore of the island and also a campfire site and an outdoor toilet.
