This is Sweden’s very first lighthouse, situated on an island southwest of Onsala near Kungsbacka in Halland. Today, the island is nature reserve and boasts one of Halland’s finest birdlife. The island is just a short boat ride away. During the summer, it’s not rare to have a pack of curious seals follow your boat in to the jetty. The Gottskär Hotel conducts guided tours to the lighthouse.
