Gullholmen

Description

Known for being  one of Sweden’s most densely populated islands and oldest fishing communities, Gullholmen is beautifully situated in Bohuslän’s outer archipelago. 

This coastal gem of a town is widely known for its active boating community, nature reserves, swimming, fishing, unique architecture, and idyllic landscape. The unique atmosphere of the island–with its narrow alleys and classic fishing cottages, boathouses and piers–provides fantastic opportunities for walks, swimming off the rocky coast, and exploring a thriving cultural scene.

Be sure to pay a visit to the numerous island attractions including  Skepparhuset, a boathouse and ship museum, the Stenstugan historic cottage, or the stunning Härmanö nature reserve, a bird watcher’s paradise. For the perfect swimming spot, head to Gullholmsbaden, where  you can easily  utilize one of many ladders to climb and  jump off the rocks. Kids will enjoy learning to sail at the local sailing school, or learning about the mysteries of the sea during Wet Coast Maritime Week. When it's time to eat, enjoy the fantastic selection of local restaurants and cafés.
