The 2.3 km (1.4 mi) of coastline at Sola Strand offers an abundance of recreation and relaxation opportunities.

During the summer months, you can rent surfboards and take surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing lessons. Explore the traces of World War II bunkers, along with an indentation that once held a Viking boathouse. If you get hungry, visit a kiosk that sells burgers and hot dogs, or a nearby hotel for something more substantial.

  • The developed system is all unattended? I was hard to either our easy access. Many times I was able to attach up to your end of the mistake only load

  • Certainly a place worth a visit! Beaches that go on for kilometers on a particularly wild landscape. The sea is cold and full of algae broadleaf (not a criticism but not latitudes views illusions) Although I have seen some locals take short baths! There are some fortifications dating back to World War II

  • On the day we went was neblinando and was a lot of wind. We stopped at the hotel for coffee and there is access to the beach. We ran out to take a look and come back running because it was very windy and freezing.

Where to stay in Stavanger

As with any Norwegian city, the high price of accommodations in Stavanger might be a bit of a shock. Luckily, the Norwegians have such a fondness for outdoor activities that most tourist destinations seem to be well served by several campsites in nearby areas. Rent a tent or a rustic cabin to appreciate Norway’s nature and cut costs. Alternatively, look for hotels in the city center around the Storhaug borough. Slightly outside of Stavanger lies the popular Sola Beach, where high-end hotels put you just steps from the sand.
