I am not a beach person, but this beach is enchantingly beautiful! The view upon the mountains, with the beautiful green water of the sea in front of it, it is truly magical to be here. Definitely a must visit if you are close.

Great beach, with sand an a little flow from the mountain. There is a walking path to Utakleiv Beach, easily accesible and walkable. Sun-downder is wonderful, especially when you reach the beaches from both sides..

Ok, we are spoiled by huge, dazzling, deserted shell sand beaches at home so perhaps this was why we were underwhelmed by this one.It's nice but not wow.Worth a longish trip just to see it? No. It is however, a white sand beach which makes...More

Locals tell us they swim in it when the sun is out. Locals must be 85% of polar bear extraction. Brrrr. It's a small little cove of sand and clear turquoise water (even on an absolutely miserable day like the day we visited). When life...More
