Hovs Hallar, Bastad

#3 of 6 in Wildlife in Skane County
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Hovs Hallar is a nature reserve on the northern tip of the Bjäre Peninsula in the county of Skåne, Sweden. It is located approximately 7 km northeast of the coastal town of Torekov. The reserve is an area of geological interest and its impressive cliff faces are home to a variety of seabirds. It is assumed that the area gave the name of the province Halland, meaning "the land beyond Hovs Hallar".The location is also the setting for the opening scenes of The Seventh Seal, with the Knight challenging Death to a game of chess for his life on the shoreline.

  • An amazing place to see and visit with "wow factor" You need to go behind the parking place downhills to see this beautiful nature. A must if you are around. Really recommend!  more »
  • This place is crazy given the histroy. Stones high as houses thats carved for thousands of years. Much similar to Gotlands raukar. If you are nearby, don't hesitate. Pay Hovs hallar a visit!  more »
  • A rocky place in the flat land of Skåne. This is one of the places that tourists love, some rocks and some water. Why? This is not that impressive!  more »
  • Nice, beautiful vista. Amazing views and great weather. Nice ice cream as well. The nature was taken care of and it was simply amazing! Would recommend it :)
  • Good buffet style food. Really nice view of the sea.
  • It's a beautiful place I recommend you to go and enjo on summer time.
  • Nice hotell. Loud dinner room. One night with excellent food and one night with not so nice food. Excellent breakfast
  • A bit overpriced and far away from everything. Good for a getaway though. They have big amounts of rooms so I wouldn't trust booking sites "only 1 room left" notifications. Food is very standard and breakfast is on a just-good-enough basis. Nice hot outside Jacuzzis. My 4yr old kid wanted to swim in the sea and the staff on the hotell said yes its alright to just go down there and swim. When we went there the road down to the sea is a bit hard to climb. No arranged stairs, something to hold in or nothing. Wouldn't recommend any people with any low physical capabilities or great outdoor shoes to go near that place. When you finally been climbing down there is a new struggle to reach the water. And you can't swim there without a rescue suit, very dangerous currents and waves that hits hard against the cliffs. So heads up there. But very beautiful nature!
