Haukland Beach Reviews
Only about a ten minute drive from Leknes, this slightly curved beach is bracketed by hills on both sides. The fine sand, combined with greenish-aqua-light blue waters indicate a gentle slope as it si... more »
Se siete in zona sicuramente merita una visita, molto bella la parte con le guide audio in italiano che descrive il periodo vichingo, gli scavi, i reperti.

Also cute is the film screened (although we later discovered that it is an absurd romance), and the Italian guide (Alessandro) who told us Viking beliefs and stories and described the house, is really very smart and passionate! Beware of the weather, to get to the boat on which to take a ride, you will have to walk about 1km,so if it rains a lot and there is a lot of wind, think about it. Inside the property a gift shop and a small restaurant with good dishes (salmon advice) at affordable prices. With the sun, or at least a glimpse of blue, we will definitely come back! Very nice even for the little ones!
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.
