Sun, blue seas and long lazy days on the beach are all part of summer. After a refreshing dip in the salt sea water the picnic tastes extra good.
Long lazy days at the beach
Save one of these days for the natural sandy beach at Degersand in Eckerö. The long and shallow beach is a popular place for families. The beach is situated in a protected bay, yet offers a fantastic view of the sea.
It’s easy to enjoy Bamböleviken with its diving tower, fine smooth bedrock and shallow sandy beach. The beach is located by a beautiful sea bay where it’s sunny and pleasant all day. At Bamböle you can swim either in shallow or deep waters, which means that the older children can enjoy the diving tower while the smaller can play at the water’s edge.
Take the opportunity to take a dip at the Bomarsund fortress ruins in Sund, if you feel dusty and warm after your sightseeing. The historical surroundings make the swim quite exciting.
