Summer swimming in Skellefteå

Skellefteå

One thing is for sure if you are in Skellefteå this summer you won’t run out of swimming spots when you need to cool off. How about 1,500 lakes, five rivers, a 300-kilometre coastline and several temperate outdoor baths? The longest sandy beach can be found at Bjuröklubb. It is called Storsand and there you can run almost for forever

Byske havsbad
A classic amongst beach bums and sun-worshippers. A long, lovely, sandy beach, a fun playground and just next door to one of Swedish Lapland’s five-star campsites. This means that you will find everything you need here in terms of food, beverages and activities — and also, temperate outdoor pools.

Boviken havsbad 
Seven kilometres north of Skellefteå is the family-friendly, shallow bay, Boviken. There are several barbecue sites and playgrounds near the beach, changing rooms, toilets and a really sandy beach volleyball court.

Storsand
Bjuröklubb is not just one of the most popular places to visit in Skellefteå, it is also home to the longest sandy sea beach in Swedish Lapland. The sand is light and fine-grained, always finding its way between your toes. On a calm day, you could easily think you were actually at a latitude far further south.

Sjöbottsand
In the middle of the small village of Sjöbotten, Sjöbottsand attracts a sandy beach that is very popular - not least among families with children. Here there is plenty of space and fresh toilets.

Falkträsket
Falkträsket near the city offers a clean sandy seabed and the beach is covered by a soft, green lawn. Lying so close to the city, Falkträsket is a very popular place for late-night dips after long, hot summer days.

Shallow, child-friendly sea bay with a lovely sandy seabed, less than a kilometre east of the community of Bureå. The sand is pleasantly fine-grained and there is a volleyball court and a
changing room.

Gullsand
Sandy beach by the sea near Söderbodan, east of Ostvik. The bathing place is not too shallow and it is quite well protected from cold northern winds. An obvious summer favourite.

Långnäset
Långnäset is one of the longest lake beaches in Swedish Lapland and is a very child-friendly bathing place. Shallow and very well suited to all kinds of beach activities. Långnäset lies one kilometre outside the village of Bodbysund, towards Skellefteå.
