Hano Island, Solvesborg

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.

  • Beautiful island in the Northwest corner. An de Hanöbukt. It is a private island with approximately 100 inhabitants. On the west side of the island is a well sheltered Marina. The hilly islet pretend has a Swedish island can expect. Some small white and yellow wooden cottages and further especially many hiking trails are nearby. Recommended.

  • When the sun shines, it may be scorching hot. Blowing it so it feels; bring your own picnic there are plenty of places to sit down in the grass and enjoy the views and nature. There is so much else on the island.

  • Exemplary reception in the guest harbour of harbour master. Clean toilets. Short hike up to the beautiful lighthouse. In addition to the English Cemetery and then into the bean. Back to the Marina and a bite to eat in the restaurant, which serves excellent food. Enjoy boating, hiking around in the harbor and enjoy the ferry skipper's skill at docking and departure from the harbour in the summer.
