    To the lighthouse...

    by Sjalen Updated Aug 8, 2003

    Well, the old beacon actually. Spårö Båk (beacon) was just a pile of wood lit up at night in the beginning but its importance was early recognised and it is today a whitewashed tower with a red roof seen from many places in the archipelago and the main symbol for Västervik so you see copies of it on anything from mini golf obstacles to patisseries...You can go on boat trips to the island (Spårö) but the schedules vary so ask at the tourist information. Thanks to Västervik council for this photo.

    Another bit of great archipelago and agricultural land in the northern bit of what is Västervik Council and only really accessible by car if you want flexibility. From there, you can also catch a boat to Väderskär and see the famous archipelago chapel and see how people have lived for generations in the harsh but stunningly beautiful outer archipelago. Loftahammar is very popular with people who want a summer house in Västervik but otherwise fairly unknown.
