Öland - sun, beach and sea
Here you will find shallow, child-friendly sandy beaches, but also rocky coastlines and pebble beaches where you can search for beautiful stones or throw skipping stones. Or why not explore Byrum’s sea-stacks with its mystical rock formations shaped by the forces of the sea? Öland is the perfect holiday destination, whether you are looking for popular beaches with loads of activities such as beach volleyball or windsurfing, or prefer the more private bathing spot.
There are more than 50 different beaches on Öland. On the east coast, for example, there is Öland’s longest sandy beach which stretches for almost 20 km along the Böda bay.
Many of Öland’s fine beaches have Blue Flag status, an international certification which means that the site meets the environmental and security standards outlined by the EU.
