From the Viking fortress in Trelleborg to the Swedish Riviera, there are only twenty kilometres

The long chalk white sandy beach around Näset was selected asone of Europe's most beautiful beaches by Rough Guides. Here you get a relaxing beach life, and inside the Skanör harbour, you can enjoy fish from local smokehouses, visit the cabanas or the inn and stroll along the beautiful houses. It is a better kept secret that Skanör/Falsterbo is Sweden's richest place for bird variety, and that over 340 species have been observed here. So whether you're a birdwatcher, a food lover or a bathing enthusiast, there is a lot to experience.
