Vahto was one of the 18 municipalities in the Turku region, and due to its close proximity to the center of Turku (about 20 km), it may also be considered part of the Turku metropolitan area. In the north, Vahto shared a common boundary mark with seven other municipalities. This famous site, called Kuhankuono in Finnish, is also a pre-historical border mark between Southwest Finland and the other Finnish provinces.
The municipality was unilingually Finnish.
