While in Sweden, we visited the small, coastal town of Havstenssund two different times, where we enjoyed swimming and jumping from the pier. The town is picturesque with a memorable (I had been to this town before) boardwalk along the boat passageway that takes you by a small lighthouse nestled up in the smooth rock. There is a boat harbor and a set of stereotypically Swedish “boat huts”. It is a peaceful, lovely place that is not overrun by tourists but has a lot of activity on the water.

Looks like a party!
Eureka! We’ve found the lighthouse.
