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.

  • We'd go 3 km but failed to take off from the trail and was well on the way to the Bastad! And then get down to the beach was a challenge but it was nothing compared to getting up to the trail again!!! Next time, we are keeping us on the trail and just where ... It was mountain climbing without climbing gear or rope or similar as security. In addition, it was slippery rocks to cross at the risk of falling/slipping down into a boiling sea ... But exciting! Many had enjoyed with coffee and sat in the Sun.

  • The food and the service is really good. The rooms are nice and clean. The view from the room over the sea is really nice.

  • Dog walk in hilly terrain! Wonderful view over Laholmsbukten! A lot of seabirds, one can look at from here, particularly when it's blowing hard from the North to the West! In summer, take with pic-nic and swimwear! You need an ounce of stamina for it is steep in places.

  • 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!
  • Good service and the absolute stunning room with rhe best view. Restauran was not so good.
  • Trevlig vinkyl, fin utsikt!
  • Wonderful seaside atmosphere, friendly service, lovely setting with good views. Classy interior.
