  • Wonderful swimming area with plenty of parking. Playgrounds for the little ones, trail for walking and exploring. Great fields and rock faces to the Sun and swimming. Sandy bottom, fit long shallow and sheltered from the waves and wind. Bus from the city centre to the Hinna or mariero. Suitable especially for families with children and those who do not like sand all over the place when they bathe.

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.
