Maybe it is a bit particular to a Swede but the Backafall song I mentioned in my intro has a finishing line along the lines of "all whilst the Moon keeps guard of Ven". I therefore became quite emotional when the Moon DID make an appearance in the countryside above me and with that orange glow you only see when it's rising (but no, I did not have a tripod so this pic is mostly for my own nostalgia even if you see a bit when clicking on it). This is what nights on Ven is about to me. It feels like you're left alone in the great outdoors by the sea, yet Copenhagen is visible in the morning haze that follows :)
But sure, I'm quite convinced that Turistgården, and especially Backafallsbyn can be quite lively in high season.

Ven is known for its fields of durum wheat and this places makes things out of it. You can buy Ven pasta of several types, Ven bread or just plain Ven flour to bake something yourself with. The place opens already at 8.00 so you can go there for breakfast buns too if you have self catering accommodation.
What to buy: My own favourite is the great saffron biscuits...ooooh...:) Great for a cyclists picnic.

There are signs here and there to respect the fencing along the coast as here and there you see big signs of erosion and even where you don't you should be careful, especially with children! The backafalls are a wonderful sight but you don't want to fall down them...
