Bathing areas in Nordre Follo municipality.


Ingierstrand bad is a recreation area by the Bunnefjorden. The sandy beach faces west with large grasslands and rocky outcrops. Paved walkways and stairs make it easy to walk around the entire area if desired, but the area is very hilly with both rocky outcrops and the beach. It's hard not to spot the diving tower. You can get here by car or bus. Two large car parks, kiosk and restaurant, toilet, wheelchair ramp and shower should not deter anyone from finding their way here.
