The lovely beaches

The sea has always been a driving force in Ystad´s development and wealth. The sea brought herring and the sea opened up contacts and trade routes with the rest of the world.

The beautiful beaches along the Ystad & Österlen nearly 40 km long coast feels never-ending. 

Here are some more tips on beautiful beaches and astonishing nature in Ystad & Österlen!

Ystad sandskog

In Sandhammaren you can find a lovely beach called "The world´s largest sand box" and "The best beach in Sweden". Fine white sand and its wide expanse you almost feel you are at a tropical paradise. 

You will also find nice places in Löderup, Nybrostrand, Sandskogen, Lilleskog and Svarte. And if you want to take a swim we have an outdoor swimming pool in Nybrostrand and a indoor swimming pool in Ystad at the arena and this is open all year round.
