An island with nature experiences and sights

Sandhamn is one of the Stockholm archipelago's most iconic locations. Here, you'll find a wide range of nature experiences, leisure activities, and archipelago life.

Activities and experiences for all tastes

Nature, culture & other sights

The island, with its distinctive nature featuring sand dunes, cliffs, and beautiful pine forests, is ideal for walks, nature experiences, and excursions. Situated at the outermost reaches of the archipelago with magnificent views of the open sea and horizon, the island is a beautiful and unique place.

Sandhamn is a genuine archipelago idyll with old pilot cottages, fishing huts, and summer houses. Here, you’ll also find a charming museum and other exciting and interesting sights.


The most famous beach is called Trouville, located on the southeastern part of the island. Here, you’ll find both a lovely sandy beach and warm rocks for sunbathing. To reach the beach from the harbor, take a 15-minute walk through the forest, across the island.

Other nice beaches include Fläskberget, a smaller beach located adjacent to the western part of the village, and Skärkarlshamn, which is about a 5-minute walk eastwards, past the Sailors Hotel. You can also swim from the cliffs on the nearby island of Lökholmen. Lökholmen is also a charming island to stroll on, and here you’ll find a café in the summer and a passenger boat runs every hour between Sandhamn and Lökholmen.
