22 BADLIV Rocky surfaces, private bays, or sandy beaches – when it comes to Halmstad you’re always ­ close to that eagerly ­ awaited dip with more than 45 km of swim friendly coast. The flagship beach is of course Tylösand, which is a must when visiting the area. On hot summer days this is the place to be, and it should include a stop at a live concert at the After Beach before you leave. If you’re looking for a less crowded spot, check out Frösakull, Ringenäs, ­ Vilshärad or Haverdal. At Särdal, Lynga, Östra stranden or Gullbranna you can combine the visit to the beach with a stroll in the nearby nature reserves.
