Miss T Loves…

…a salty beach on the West coast. This is popular Tylö in Halmstad (above). One summer I tested ten beaches in south Sweden for a newspaper and this got the highest scores. Partly because it is holds so much happy summer memories of camping with friends and having a camp fire on the beach all night long – but I will not tell you about the skinny dipping under the bright August moon. This is here popstar Per Gessle (Roxette/Gyllene Tider) constantly find inspiration to his iconic summer soundtrack.

Other fab sandy beaches is Laxvik and Östra Stranden on the other side of Halmstad. Further south you can kite surf in Apelviken, Varberg, and feel rich and beautiful in the pearl white sand at Falsterbo näset! If you want multiculture and samba and a sporty boardwalk for rollerskating or snakeboard head for Ribban in Malmö.

My boyfriend, born and raised in Halmstad, stay true to his childhood memories:

“I have to say my favorite is Östra Stranden. It’s close, not deep, there is a kiosk, not too many people… I think the mini golf there is great!”

When Swedish business magazine DI Weekend list the best beaches:

• Norsta Aurar, Fårö – wild and rare.
• Bläsinge, Öland – postcard beautiful but often windy.
• Åsa, Göteborg – calm beach with private feel.
• Bjurö klubb, Västerbotten – North Sweden’s wild gem.
• Skreastrand, Falkenberg – classic bath cabins.
• Rörums strand, Österlen – packed with people but beautiful Mediteranien sea feel.
