    A trip to Lofoten must include, inevitably, a visit to the beautiful beaches of the West Coast. In the early days we had already seen Unstad (having slept there) and the beautiful and vast Crescent of Ramberg whereby we decide to spend the last day of stay at beaches on the island of Vestvågøya. From Henningsvær, where we stay, we employ around forty minutes to reach Vikstranda, the beach of Vik, beautiful expanse of white sand arcing deserted despite various camper parked on the grass at the roadside and water between blue and green. When we arrive the scenario, although Nice, doesn't view in all its glory because of clouds covering the Sun. Some pictures, some shells and the sound of the sea ... or rather the Atlantic Ocean ... ^_^ after A few minutes here is the beautiful beach of Haukland. The climate of Lofoten has accustomed us to sudden changes, and in fact, although it's only been a few minutes, sprouting on Sun and a beautiful blue sky with white clouds and here you have the possibility of easily confuse these places with those of other latitudes--the so-called tropical paradises. And yet these are the Arctic havens:-). Haucklandstranda is great, very white, surrounded by pointy and disruptive, Stony Mountain. For lovers of hiking you can climb on steep trails to the peaks of these mountains, rugged and see so many people who ventures as we see little dots print who arrived on and enjoying the panorama taking pictures that we imagine beautiful. We prefer to take a private path (as always you can benefit from it the important thing is to always close the gate, as also written signs, not to let the animals graze) which surrounds the mountain, the hump day and after nearly 5 km reaches the next beach ... Uttakleiv. Us though we stop first, between one sheep and another, enjoying a beautiful view of the beach and the sea that takes incredible colors with shades from blue, turquoise blue, aided by the shallow and the whiteness of the sand ... Once back we enjoy the beach a bit more crowded than that of Vik and I try to soak your feet feeling good feeling ' refrigerant ' ... but I resist little ^_^ while there is also who you bathe (mostly children). Pleasant and relaxing moments, as said is a highly recommended, obviously preferable on a nice day.

    We came on a day that was beautifully sunny, then became overcast then rained. The beach is Beautiful in every weather and we loved it. The color of the water, the views: yes!  more »

    Admittedly, this beach has done me such impressions as Kalvika Beach, but admits that it has something. Clean, icy water, beach-zero garbage. Views or anything myself. The upside is that close we have parking. Together with friends I spent a nice time there. I recommend this place to anyone who chooses to Lofoten!

    Beautiful beach with amazing surroundings. Can get a bit busy at times, but there are plenty of places around. Also great for camping.

    Spent two nights there. The beach is really beautiful, white sand and very clear water. Parking is free and toilets were kept in great condition.

    White sand and turquoise water with sharp mountains surrounding the beach. You can also camp here for free even though on the signs it appears that you are not allowed to do it.
