Once you've arrived on Gotland (the "mainland" as Fårö people call it), it is around 50 kilometres to Fårösund in the north, from where you catch a free road ferry to the island. You can go by bus from Visby to Fårösund if you do not have your own car - in fact you can even stay on the bus rather than board as a foot passenger on some buses as long as they continue to Sudersand on Fårö and don't terminate at Fårösund, it depends. Cars, bikes, buses and a scattering of foot passengers all share the ferries which take 7 minutes to cross the strait and which run every half hour in winter but more regularly during the busy summer. Despite this, if the weather is really good, you can expect 1-2 hour queues for cars which is when it feels nice to be on a bus as they have priority since they run to schedules. Fårö residents of course also have priority since they cannot sit in two hour queues just to get home. But don't worry - most days it's not that bad.

Around the ferry you find different kind of tourist and souvenir shops. They sell usually the same things, but the best way is to visit them all. You will have time to do that while you wait on the ferry.
What to buy: All kind of touristic and souvenir things you will find here. Many things from these shops are made in wool from the sheeps. A lots of handycrafts around here. The people from Fårö are known to be very creative.

Address: Around the ferry.
The sheep, or lambs as they are in fact known here on Fårö, have their own shelters in the form of lambgifts with "grass" roofing. Yes it is in fact gifts to the lambs so they will thrive on this windy island and they are like small copies of traditional Fårö houses (see tip). Amazing how pure English all of a sudden appear on an island in the Baltic Sea!

One of Gotland's best beaches (certainly the best one I've come across so far) can be found on Fårö in the form of Sudersand. The only thing I was disappointed with were the toilet facilities which they need to improve to get a great place. The beach has a couple of kiosks, pedaloes and a generally good vibe as it is close to Fårö's only real tourist development with Stockholmers' summer cottages and so on so there is always something going on here even if it is not known for its nightlife as much as the beaches around Visby.
