Summer seems so far away now, but I wanted to share a beautiful place with you that we visited during our long, lazy Swedish summer 🙂 Skanör is right down in the southwest corner of Skåne, Sweden, and you can see Denmark and the famous Öresund bridge connecting the two countries. There is a pretty town, surrounded by long stretches of white sandy beaches and beautiful blue clear seas.
I took the trio on a camping adventure to Skanör over the summer. It was only for 2 nights (I was the only adult with 2 five year old’s and a 9 year old, and camping is hard work!!), but we could have easily stayed a lot longer (in a hotel!!) enjoying the pristine white beaches, clean clear seas, and stunning views. We pottered a little around the town of Skanör to get a feel for the place, before heading down towards the sand dunes. Nestled in the sand dunes are lots of very pretty beach huts, painted an array of all the colours of the rainbow, making it such a fun place for the children to play in. Nature, once again, presented them with a really exciting playground 🙂 We even managed to locate a geocache in the dunes too.
The beaches are so vast here that there is more than enough room for everybody, and you feel that you are in your own bit of paradise even though it is the middle of the summer and peak holiday season. My mini men loved running along the beach (a game they did for ages), and I could let them run way into the distance as I could see them easily with it not being busy. They also got a great sense of freedom. The three also enjoyed running in amongst the dunes, hiding in them (I enjoyed that bit slightly less as they were vast!), and making up games using the slopes of the dunes. If you are ever in the south of Sweden, Skanör is a must visit place to experience.
