Sandhamn is far out in the outermost archipelago and is one of the most popular islands. In the summer, the harbour is full of visiting boats and tourists strolling the harbour.

You can come just for the day, have lunch or dinner at the historical Värdshuset or grab a snack at one of the many shops down at the harbour. You can also stay the night at one of Sandham’s accommodations, Seglarhotellet or Sands Hotel.

If you venture away from the harbour on one of the paths through the pine forest you will reach long sandy beaches with beautiful views across the ocean. At Sandhamn you can have a dip in the ocean from both cliffs and sand beaches of which Trouville is a favourite for many. At the harbour you will find cafés, bars, restaurants, boutiques, shops, and hotels. Or you can rent a kayak to go exploring by sea.
