Sola Strand, Stavanger

4.6
The 2.3 km (1.4 mi) of coastline at Sola Strand offers an abundance of recreation and relaxation opportunities. With its expansive white sand, hiking trails through the dunes, and consistent breeze, it attracts travelers from all over, especially those interested in wind and water sports. 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. Onsite facilities include restrooms and dressing rooms, a parking area, and a golf course on the southern end.

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.
