Although Sweden is not synonymous with beach holidays, it does boast a coastline attractive enough and warm enough, at some points of the year, to warrant popularity as a beach holiday destination. Skane, in the southernmost part of the country, has been described as the St Tropez of Sweden (largely because it attracts the likes of the Swedish royal family, various other celebrities and the rich and the famous, in general). Ala, the 40 kilometre-long stretch of coast between Kristianstad and Osterlen offers beach lovers fine white sand and beautiful views, while Malarhusen-Sandhammaren, the second largest continuous beach, stretches from Skllinge in the north to Loderup in the south. There are many opportunities for beach holidays in Sweden, all you have to do is take your pick.
