Beaches on Hven

  • Hven

There are many good places to go for a swim all around the island. Some of them have very rocky beaches, some are sandy beaches and some are both sandy and rocky. Here are some of the best bathing spot on the island.

1. The beach in Bäckviken’s harbour

Right next to the harbour of Bäckviken is a small beach with a small jetty. Toilets, picnic tables and grills are located closely to the beach.

2. The rocky beach at Möllebäcken

Close to the location where Tycho Brahe once let build a paper mill is a very rocky beach where you can just enjoy the stunning scenery or maybe even go for a swim. Nothing is here besides nature to enjoy.

3. The beautiful sandy beach at Norreborg’s harbour

This is probably one of the islands best beaches. It’s a big sandy beach right next to Norreborg’s small marina, so there’s almost everything you need.

4. Stahe beach

A secluded rocky beach. However, the bottom in the water is sandy just after a few meter and the water is shallow.

5. The beach at Kyrkbacken’s harbour

A nice spot to spend a day on the beach is right next to the harbour of Kyrkbacken. There is everything you need, for example, a kiosk, some restaurants and toilets and showers around the harbour.
