There used to be a train service when I was little and the railway is still very much in use to get iron ore to the steelworks but today you have to catch bus 715 from nearby Nyköping railway station (or bus station for that matter). This sometimes goes all the way from Skavsta airport which Ryanair uses as "Stockholm South". If you come by car, you have a motorway the 10 km from Nyköping due to the important harbour needing protection in emergencies.

The guest harbour has grown from a small kiosk when I was little, to a restaurant with its own veranda and outdoor dance stage. Locals come here for daily special meals and in the evening it turns into waitress service. I've had better food in town but it is OK so I sometimes come for the harbour view offered and for a bit of life from all visiting yachts from Sweden, Germany, NL and Finland in high season but during more quiet parts of summer, you will find that drunk locals frequent the restaurants more than sailors. The sailors have two guest harbours to chose from but this is the largest and the one most pick as it is closer to the centre with its shops and lets face it, most sailors only come ashore to bunker up more supplies unless they shelter from storms. Wednsday night is to be avoided as that's when the dance bands come to town and play on the outdoor stage. Imagine "I do I do I do" ten times worse and add some dancing couples and you'll see why you're better off in the Fishing harbour.
Unique Suggestions: Have a pear cider and study the talkative and cheeky seagulls and sparrows trying to steal food. Check out the huge Swiss yacht that just came in...
Fun Alternatives: Fishing harbour any day!

The locals know it but it's never that crowded as it is less central than the other seaside areas. This doesn't have huge cliffs but instead a beach, cafe (with erratic opening hours) and cottages you can rent by the bay in the Baltic Sea. The surrounding countryside is very idyllic. Follow signs from the old Nyköping-Oxelösund road.
