  • This beach, in itself beautiful, was made even more magical by the blanket of snow that covered partially during the day of our visit. A surreal landscape: snow, sand, sea, mountains. PURE MAGIC. A sea of Caribbean colors enhanced by the sparkle of snow. A beauty that fills your eyes!!! Some practical information: the beach has ample parking and there are toilets (in this period left in indecent conditions and thus not usable). You can walk to Uttakleiv Beach along a broad, simple and well maintained hiking trail along the mountain (careful though to points in shadow with ice!!) or choose to walk the tunnel connecting the two locations (on foot, however, do not recommend because it is very narrow and currently under maintenance).

  • I like this beach, although winter is not suitable for water, but the snow covered mountain Jinghaijing is very beautiful. We have seen the sun on this side for two times, very dreamy. This evening also fits the light!

  • Haukland Beach is the first Beach, where we had to visit upon arrival on the Lofoten Islands. We arrived there closer to sunset. A fabulous spectacle. Pure white sand under the glass of ice, surfers, not afraid of neither the cold nor the wind. Snow-capped mountains and our little party of seven, zabravshajasja alone on the edge of the world!

  • Visiting Lofoten I have prepared myself the top 10 beaches to visit on the island this one was my first and honestly it was fantastic to see amazing deserted beach for yourself with white fine sand beach and beautiful turquoise water and all surrounded by beautiful mountains the place has outside services facility and could see sign old people camping on the place. The mountains around are easy climbing or for work in a beautiful location for pictures taking and North lights site.
  • Beautiful beach. In the first moment it is weird to have such a beautiful sand beach as it somehow doesn't fit to the rough and rocky mountains around. But it is great staying there making some fire for a barbecue, enjoying the view and the sound of the sea. 4 stars only as the toilet house could be in a better shape.
  • Amazing, beautiful andcwindy beach surrounded by high mountains. Was there in December 2016. You can easily visit Uttakleiv and Unstad beaches the same day if you are on a roadtrip. Prepare to walk and hike on the steeper ground if you want to take pics from different perspectives
  • Feels weird and surreal to spot such a beautiful (and empty) beach amidst the surrounding rugged terrain and of course, the cold. I imagine it might be slightly more tempting in the summer to brave the cold waters, but even if you didn't come for a swim, the scenery is still worthwhile for a short walk along the beach. Do beware of the wind though
  • One of the best things I did during my solo trip to Norway was make a visit to the Lofoten Islands albeit just a day's visit (July). This is an Arctic paradise! I had pre booked a cycle and picked it up from the airport itself in Leknes. Haukland Beach was recommended to me... and boy, what an amazing cycling ride it was! Not a single soul on the road except for some occasional zooming cars! A beautiful turquoise colored beach, pure white sand, beautiful green mountains with a bit of snow, black rocks on the side, curious looking sheep around, i saw nature in its grandeur. Although the sign says no camping, a saw a few tents pitched. The public toilet there was super clean and I was amazed! It's a great place for family, friends or solo travelers! There are no restaurants around, so carry plenty of food and water. You can hike up the mountain to get some breathtaking views.
