The music of nature is excellent relaxation. Sandefjord boasts a long coastline, large forests, numerous rocks and sandy beaches that offer scope for relaxation year-round.
In between the sandy beaches lie a series of sheltered coves and beautiful smooth, sloping rocks. You can choose between bustling beaches or more secluded bathing areas – all along a coastline that is almost 93 miles long.
If you want to go walking or hiking, the possibilities are many and varied – both along the coast and in the forest. The coastal trail on Vesterøya offers 15 miles of marked trails for hikers where Folehavna, with its smooth coastal rocks and stunning view, lies at the entrance to the open sea. You will also find the ruins of a German fortress built in 1941.
