The Southwest Swedish Coast – Hamburgö

We spent a week at the end of our summer break on a small island off the southwest Swedish coast. Hamburgö is across a little sound from Hamburgsund, accessible by an electric cable ferry.

    1. Actually, the weather was cool and very windy while we were there in August so the dips were fewer and shorter than they otherwise might have been. But, yes, with hot summer temps it would’ve been great!!
