Årsta havsbad is on the mainland and serves as a junction for travel to the islands in the eastern and southern archipelago. It is also a popular tourist destination with an atmosphere reminiscent of a seaside resort.

Here you can swim in the ocean from shallow sandy beaches, play golf, or take long walks. There are restaurants and shops and a jetty for the boats to Utö. Nearby you will find Årsta Castle with a castle museum, a museum playhouse in the English Garden and a culture trail called Fredrikaslingan.
