Mandal is known for its many beaches and the most “famous” is Sjøsanden. It lies at the edge of the city, is 800 metres long, and has been voted several times as the best beach in Norway.

The beach is long with lots of space for everyone. There was also a small kiosk with a very long line to buy ice cream. There were also toilets available. Missing some shadow to place the stroller with the sleeping baby though.

A beach for everyone and almost everything. This long white sandy beach with it's clean water is perfect for the sun worshipers, water babies or volleyball athletes. Right behind the beach is Furulunden, great for walks or runs.

Best beach in Norway and there is nothing that cost there. Beautiful view and sitting in the sand watching the boats, cano, cajac etc sailing by is so great.

Nice beach, white sand, but further no more to say. Sand should be cleaned , I guess, and some kind of activities like ice cream or whatever would make more fun.
