Hovs Hallar, Bastad

(4.3/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Amazing beautiful place to hike with cliffs, caves and silence. Remember the good hiking boots-not for young children

  • A great area with nice walking trails and if you dare to take a dip. View over Laholmsbukten against Halmstad and Tylösand is stunning in clear weather

  • We are in the neighborhood, we take a detour to go here and look and walk down to the sea. Very nice rock formations. A little awkward to get down, but it is possible. Not with a wheelchair or Walker. Please take a moment here and enjoy. A sight that really CAN BE RECOMMENDED.

  • 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.
