Kosterhavet National Park is the first national marine park in Sweden, inaugurated on September 2009.

It consists of the sea and shores around the Koster Islands, excluding everything else on the islands. In the north, it borders the Norwegian marine park of Ytre Hvaler.NatureThe environment in the park is unique to Swedish waters. Over 6,000 marine species have been identified, about 200 of them can not to be found elsewhere in Sweden. The Kosterfjord (Koster Fjord) is 200m deep with relatively low temperature – 5to – and high salinity (about 35%). Brachiopod, sponge and coral larvae are brought in by currents from the Atlantic. Rare seabirds, such as Arctic terns and skuas, along with a large population of harbor seals have their habitat here. Plaice, cod and sea trout breed in the more shallow waters closer to the shore.Make Kosterhavets Nationalpark a part of your Stromstad vacation plans using our Stromstad trip itinerary planner .

What we enjoyed the walk from Ekenäs to Kilesand and the rental bicycles for the rest vsn island. Beautiful, unique, varied and particular. Really worth it. Do you want to rent bikes please do so on Långegärde because that is the best service and the latest cycling!! Well worth a visit!!

Min samboer og meg selv var på båtferie til Koster i sommer. Veldig koselig sted med flere restauranter med god mat. Fint og gå turer, leie sykler eller golfbiler. Et stort minus er at når man kommer ... more »My roommate and myself were on the boat hire Turkey to Costs in the summer. Very cozy place with several restaurants with good food. Good and go for walks, rent bikes or golf carts. A big minus is that when you come during the summer holidays båtveien is the stuff full of boats anywhere. But definitely worth and visit if nothing else a day trip. It goes more route boats from Strømstad many times a day. All places where credit card take after what the stand of info on the Web.
