Not so many beaches to enjoy around the region, and not precisely the best plan to go swimming, considering the temperature of the water even in summer, but they are really great on a sunny summer day :)

This is a perfect place to spend a sunny day, but remember to get here early, because it's very popular on warm days.

We were blown away by the beauty of these beaches. We weren't expecting white sand beaches in Norway! We walked along the coastal heritage path - stunning scenery.

Stunning part of Norway - stunning beaches and scenery. We visited on a warm day in March and it was lovely with a touch of chill from the sea breeze. In Summer i presume it would be a great place to spend a few hours.

I live on this island and I've been travelling the world but you won't find beaches more beautyful than this. To bad the climate is a bit cold and you can rarely take a bath without freezing half to death.
