  • Wonderful white sand and green waters. The western part is full of campers, but you can walk to the south easters part of the beach, here we were almost alone. Hiking possibilities nearby. Great...  more »
  • Great walk around the headland to Uttakliev; highly recommended even for kids and older people; it's dead flat. Funky little coffee bar was much appreciated, as was the lavatory, so I guess I can't.....  more »
  • Beautiful beach, nice to stroll and listen to the waves coming in. Pity that it was cold and sky was overcast so no sunset nor northern lights.  more »

  • Excellent beach with kayak and wetsuit rentals. Safe for swimming with a lovely hike easily accessible. Bathrooms on site. There is a sign saying No Camping, but I am not sure if this is just for the beach area. The surrounding fields had about 20 tents lined up with people camping and no problems or questions were asked.
  • Sensational Beach. Definitely in the top three on the Lofoten. Only the sun is around 6pm already behind the huge mountain. Very popular for locals to sleep in tents on the superb grass right by the sandy beach. Hard to find a parking spot on sunny days. Several great hikes with rewarding views start from there to the surrounding mountain peaks.
  • Beautiful beach and hiking area. Very scenic, in a bay surrounded by mountains. There is a parking area, where it's not allowed to park campervans, and also a larger lot for regular cars. There is a small beach cafe with fresh coffee and pastries, and also some rentals (wetsuits, boards...).
  • Lovely beach and area with a toilet but bring your own drinking water. Nice picnic tables. Really beaut!
  • The beach itself is fantastic! White sands and clear (but cold) blue water. The parking is very crowded when the weather is nice and other facilities are lacking, but there is work done right now to improve this. Excellent starting point for walks with beautiful views.
