    Torekov

    I will long count my visit to Torekov as one of the nicest days in my life. Sure, I had good company (the family) and gorgeous weather, but I must still put a lot of it down to the cosiness of this very special village. A former fishing village, it has grown since it is now a very popular summer destination for Stockholmers. This means house prices are high and I had expected the local summer guests to be somewhat snobby but the atmosphere was great! On top of that, wealthy Stockholmers means good restaurants for such a small place. There are also beaches around the village (if you don't fancy the famous jetty that is) and the boat to Hallands Väderö. I really hope to return to tell you more but for now, you have to look at my Torekov page to read more.

    Norrviken Gardens

    Amongst the most famous gardens in Sweden, Norrviken is only a few kilometres west of Båstad itself and one of the main attractions of the town. Not only the garden itself but also the many sculptures in it make people flock here from spring onwards.

    Hallands Väderö

    Hallands V��der��

    If you have at least half a day to spare and want an unusual nature experience, head for this island. The boats take you to a part of the island where you can have a look at the peculiar swamp forest and where there is a beach to swim at and a cafe summertime. The island is just as famous for the trips when the boats don't stop but go on safari around the island to see its seal colony on other parts of it. For safari trips, you've got to book in advance.

    If you never played tennis on red clay before. This is the time and place to do it. The large proshop has everything you need, and more.

    Wear shoes and socks you don't mind looking brown/reddish after you play.

    Tennis - Swedish Open venue

    Bastad stadium, Sweden

    Bastad is the site of the Swedish Open tennis tournament. This runs each year in July. I didn't get to watch the tennis as we were there later in the year, but I was able to look around the stadium.

    Like Kullaberg on the peninsula just south of this one, the scenery on the northern tip is one of fascinating pink cliffs and just like there, it has become a nature reserve. To be ctd.
