Activities and relaxation

There are plenty of options if you want to be active at Västra stranden. The Söderpiren pier is on the beach. Here, you can hire equipment for a variety of water sports such as wakeboarding, stand up paddleboarding, windsurfing and wave surfing. After an active day, we recommend sitting down at the Söderpiren Café or taking a dip in their hot tub. All year round, Västra stranden is ideal for long walks along Prince Bertil’s Trail, which passes through the entire beach.
