With the ocean as nearest neighbor

Skanör / Falsterbo

Skanör and Falsterbo are located as a little jewel at the bottom of the south-western corner of Sweden.  With the ocean as the nearest neighbor, nature has been formed for millions of years to the beautiful place it is today.

Many tourists and bathers who experience the beaches for the first time don’t understand how locals ever want to leave this place for an other place and vacation! The sand is clear white and very, very fine-grained.

So sure, it’s well worth the effort to take a bath towel and settle down in the sand a sunny summer day – But do not forget to swim! The water is crystal clear and clean, with well-rolling sand bottom. And the water can stay surprisingly warm far into autumn!


In the past, a trip to Skanör and Falsterbo could be very riotous when crossing “Ljungen” (the land between Ljunghusen and Skanör/Falsterbo), which was constantly ravaged by air sands. Therefore, Skanör-Falsterbo was almost always visited by sea.

In the Middle Ages, the herring came in such quantities that boats couldn’t take care of it all – at least if one believes the stories. At the same time, there was a power struggle between kings and the “Hansa” about revenues from trade. The battle between Denmark and Sweden about “Skåne” was largely based on the struggle for revenues from herring fishery. Because at this time, the herring was the major export product, due to the fact that the Catholic Church didn’t allow people to eat meat before the holidays and in the lenting.




With three of the country’s premier golf clubs nearby – Falsterbo Golf Club, Flommens Golf Club and Ljunghusens Golf Club – Skanör is an excellent destination for playing golf.

You can book a golf package with us or visit the courses on site.



A short 10 minute drive from the hotel will get you to Fotevikens Museum. The museum offers visitors a unique insight into what life as a Viking in Skåne might have been like, with a reconstructed Viking town that has been rebuilt with a contemporary spirit.

Every year thousands of vikings from all over the world visit and live in this area.

It’s a historical and fun attraction for both young and old visitors!


Falsterbo Horse Show

For many, the name Falsterbo is associated with horses. This is perhaps not so surprising, as the international Horse competition Falsterbo Horse Show is hosted here every summer.

It’s the year’s biggest event and attraction, which annually attracts tourists from all over Europe.



“Skåneleden” – a local hiking trail – offers you a lovely walk from Skanör to Falsterbo. It’s a fantastic trail to follow as it shows the best of the surrounding beaches, sea and nature.
