Description

The vast archipelago offers excellent opportunities to explore. At most islands, plenty of mooring pins are available. Please take the weather conditions into account. The early evening breeze can be strong in summer, and it is wise to find somewhere providing shelter from the wind.

Below are some recommended spots close to the town centre, which can easily be reached with smaller vessels such as the open boat with a 4 hp outboard motor available for hire from the tourist office.

Store Hampholmen and Lille Hampholmen.
A very popular option as sheltered areas are easy to find in the straits between and around the two islands. Several secluded, picturesque spots with small sandy beaches. Quay and toilet facilities.

Teistholmen.
With its beautiful, sheltered sandy beach, Teistholmen is the ideal spot for families with children. A wonderful, smooth rocky shore and several potholes can also be found on the island. Quay and toilet facilities.
