  • Excellent beach with kayak and wetsuit rentals. Safe for swimming with a lovely hike easily accessible. Bathrooms on site. There is a sign saying No Camping, but I am not sure if this is just for the beach area. The surrounding fields had about 20 tents lined up with people camping and no problems or questions were asked.
  • Sensational Beach. Definitely in the top three on the Lofoten. Only the sun is around 6pm already behind the huge mountain. Very popular for locals to sleep in tents on the superb grass right by the sandy beach. Hard to find a parking spot on sunny days. Several great hikes with rewarding views start from there to the surrounding mountain peaks.
