    Sunny days by the sea

    On any sunny day, Malmö's citizens gather in Västra Hamnen to walk along the Sundspromenaden seafront promenade (I have never been to Beirut but to me, on busy days it feels like its corniche still), have a coffee or Italian ice cream in a cafe and just people watch. See the second picture just to see how crowded it can get there on a really good day as people bring their coffee to the fantastic wooden steps by the sea to watch the Öresund Bridge and relax. There is also the Scaniabadet jetty just around the corner, where you can go swimming and further plans to build a seawater pool complex there. Homeowners in the area complain about the traffic, noise, photographing tourists and people taking shortcuts through their yards on sunny days, but the fact remains that everyone loves this place even if they cannot or will not all pay to live here. The area is very popular with expats, some even commuting to Copenhagen. Shopping in the local hypermarket, you always hear all sorts of languages.

    Spectacular sunsets can be seen from Sundspromenaden, and on July evenings free concerts to go with them, weather permitting ("Goodnight Sun").
