Tjuvahålan

Tjuvahålan is a naturally beautiful small family beach in Tylösand with a sandy beach, rocks and a jetty. In the past, thieves roamed here, reflected in the name Thieves’ Cave. There are great opportunities here for snorkelling, fishing and barbecuing. Prince Bertil's Trail passes the beach.

The history of the cove is an exciting one. It was very popular with smugglers and pirates thanks to its location, hidden from ships at sea. In the end, the authorities grew tired of smuggling and built a coastal post in the 1870, which put a stop to the illegal activities.

At the end of the 1910s a boat service started, carrying bathers from Halmstad out to Tylösand. After a while this also stopped at Tjuvahålan and Svärjarehålan. The ferry stopped operating in 1929, when more people were travelling to the beaches by car or bus. In the 1920s young people began to camp at Tjuvahålan. After a while, a campsite was formed, and finally developed into small cottages owned by a cottage association.

There is an outside toilet and playground at Tjuvahålan.
