Three seaside nature reserves

There is something quite magical about nature around the sea. The beauty and the serenity with the waves gently lapping the shores has to be experienced to be believed. All along the coast of Halland you will find enchanting dunes that flank the seashore, along with pine trees and hedges.

Over thousands of years, the wind and the waves have chiselled the Halland coastline into soaring dunes, beaches as far as the eye can see and secret groves and forests. The ocean makes it presence felt everywhere. Sometimes it’s calm and serene, and at other times you can witness it’s wild fury.

Grimsholmen is not your typical coastal area. It’s teeming with diverse flora and fauna, so if you’re interested in nature and animals, there’s no other place you’d rather be. There are several beaches to choose from. Pick your favourite and go for an early morning dip. Or just lounge back on the sand and enjoy the crisp sea breeze.

sweden’s highest sand dune

Where else can you take a gentle stroll from the beach and land up in the middle of a forest, but in Haverdal nature reserve. You will also find Sweden’s highest sand dune, the ‘Stora Sandkullen’ which rises 36 metres above sea level and offers spectacular views of the sea and the forest. The pine forest is dotted with convenient picnic benches so you can take a break and enjoy the calm.
