Swimming in the city
One of the most popular beaches is located in the park Tantolunden on the island of Södermalm. With its proximity to the hip cafés and restaurants of Hornstull, SoFo and Mariatorget it is the perfect summer hangout. There is both a sandy beach and cliffs to lay down on and watch the boats go by. If you prefer staying active you’ll find a beach volleyball court, disc golf course, minigolf and an outdoor gym in the park. Don’t miss the beautiful allotment gardens on the hill above the park. The colourful miniature houses with gorgeous flowerbeds adds to the charm of Tantolunden.
Other popular city beaches are Långholmsbadet, Smedsuddsbadet and Rålambshovsbadet all accessible with public transport.
