Sun, sea, sand and bathing
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 even better.
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. It 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 is sunny and pleasant all day. You can swim either in shallow or deep waters at Bamböle, which means that the older children can enjoy the diving tower while the smaller ones play at the water’s edge.
If you feel warm and sticky after your sightseeing, take the opportunity to take a dip at the Bomarsund fortress ruins in Sund. The historical surroundings make the swim particularly exciting.
A whole house of splashing and water games
The Mariebad swimming pools and spa centre has a superb position over the waters of the eastern harbour. With its bubble pool, giddying water slide and exciting fun pool - not to mention the 8-lane exercise pool - the centre is fun for the whole family. Outside the centre there is a sundeck and swimming jetty exclusively for Mariebad guests wherea the beach and café are open to everyone. Weary bodies can be soothed with some pampering in the Spa.
Now you can take your sauna to wherever you want to swim. If you rent a sauna boat, that is. Just take the rudder and set your course for the nearest beautiful bay. Sauna boats are available from Sandösunds Camping, or at Långvikens Stugor.
