Ribersborgsstranden

Bathing beach in Malmö

The beach and the associated recreational area are located in Malmö district Ribersborg and therefore only in about a three kilometers distance from the citycenter of Malmö.

The extensive green areas and the long sandy beach were already created in the mid-1920s as a recreational area for the city's population. The sand for the beach was specially fetched from the Öresund and then delivered by train.

The entire recreational area extends from the new district Västra hamn along the coast up to Limhamn. Walking and biking paths lead through the spacious lawns behind the beach. There are also several playgrounds for football, rugby and American football.

The beach is equipped with a total of 10 bathing piers. If you walk along the beach from Västra Hamnen, you meet the Kallbadhus Ribersborg at the first bridge. At the end of a broad pier is the bath house, built in 1898 and fully restored in 2009. In addition to a sauna, the complex has a café and restaurant where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the sea.

At the end of the beach, between the last bathing bridge and a marina, there is a beach section for nude bathers.
