Hano Island, Solvesborg

(4.3/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
Hanö is an island off Listerlandet peninsula, western Blekinge, Sweden.Between 1810 and 1812 the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom used the island as its base during its operations in the Baltic Sea. The "English Seaman's Graveyard" is situated on the island, and still today British warships visit the island to pay tribute to the fifteen sailors who rest there. In 1972 the Royal Navy constructed a big wooden cross on the spot of the graveyard which is visible several miles out to sea.

  • The island offers stunning scenery, kullerstensåsen that rolls out in the sea, the lighthouse on the highest peak, the rocks to bathe, the island offers a peaceful break, to enjoy the sea wherever you go.

  • Nice boat trip if the weather is with you. Beautiful nature with many opportunities to explore the island on foot. A refreshing bath at the bean bag can be recommended. One tip is to bring a packed lunch as most cost more than usual but a gelato in the port is never wrong.

Yes, the list of Hanö can be endless. A small cosy island with many opportunities for entertainment. A must to go to if you are staying in Western Blekinge.
