Whichever road you drive down on Österlen, every other farm seems to have a sign saying gallery, art ("konst") or handicraft. Stop at the ones you fancy and see if you find something. Personally, I like Ann-Margret's gallery in Baskemölla. She does oil paintings of animals for instance. There are of course loads and loads of water colourings of the local landscape...
Apart from paintings, you will find pottery and wooden sailing ships galore.
What to pay: anything

It is not dangerous to swim on the Österlen beaches but DO read the warning signs for where you can and cannot swim and where there are currents (esp. Sandhammaren and Knäbäckshusen). The signs are there for your own safety.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Fairly flat and by the sea, you may want to bring a windproof jacket. If you will bike a lot, consider suitable clothes.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Swim gear for all your beach stops :-)

Favorite thing: The coastal road between Ystad and Simrishamn is a must. Starting with Ale stenar, then Backåkra (see separate entry and this picture), Sandhammaren, Skillinge, Brantevik and finally, Simrishamn. Then again, the northern road to Stenshuvud, then Kivik, Brösarp...oh dear, lost in a picturesque village again! :-)))
Fondest memory: Walking around Skillinge with a friend who grew up there, listening to stories about fishing and shipping...seeing the headland of Stenshuvud appear for the first time...dreaming about farms I will never own.
