The city on the south coast of Sweden

The town of Ystad is located in Sweden, in the province of Skåne län, and is considered the capital of this municipality. The urban area stretches along the Järavall on the coast, a ridge of land made of gravel and stones that extends as far as Falsterbohin and Trelleborg. In addition to the classic car and train connections, you can also reach the city by ferry from the Danish island of Bornholmaus or from Swinemünde in Poland.

Travelers and Activities

Holidays at the beach

Along the coast, as well as directly in front of the city of Ystad, there are several kilometres of sandy beaches that invite you to sunbathe, swim and build sand castles. The Ystad Sandskog is not only one of the most popular beaches in the region, but is also within walking distance of your centrally located holiday home. Other beautiful beaches are Svarte, Löderup and Sandhammaren.

Explore the region by hiking and walking

The Hagestad Nature Reserve is the perfect place to do outdoor activities. The nature reserve includes the impressive dune landscape near Sandhammaren as well as the Snogeholm forest area.
