A jewel with the ocean as the nearest neighbor

Skanör / Falsterbo

Skanör and Falsterbo are located as little jewels 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 who experience the beaches for the first time don’t understand how locals ever want to leave this place for vacationing in other places! The sand is clear white and 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 the autumnal months!

History

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.
