The mile-long sandy beach stretches from Båstad in the south to the river Lagan's estuary in the north. It is a lovely bathing paradise with several sandy beaches and safe coves – so bring the kids along; they’ll have much to do.
When the wind is up and blowing, both Mellbystrand and Skummeslövstrand are perfect for windsurfing. (This area is considered one of Sweden’s best windsurfing sites and there are special windsurfing zones.) Not too far from the beach is Hökafältet, a gorgeous nature reserve that is perfect long forest walks combined with a bit of au natural barbecuing.
