Ekevikens Badplats

Beach in the north-east of the island of Fåro

The bathing beach Ekevikens Badplats is located near the fishing village of Ekeviken in the north-east of Fårö, the neighbouring island to the north of Gotland.

Ekevikens Badplats is also known as Nordersand and is located in a wide bay on the north side of the island of Fårö. It consists of an approximately 900-metre-long sandy beach with a belt of dunes adjoined by a strip of sparse woodland. The sand on the beach is relatively fine-grained and also continues on the seabed of the gently sloping shore area.

The beach is kept natural and has no bathing jetties or playground equipment. Toilet, trash cans and life-saving equipment are available and warning signs point out the danger of strong currents when the wind blows offshore. Although the beach faces north, the lack of trees and bushes means that it is in full sunshine from dawn to dusk when the weather is fine.

Ekevikens Badplats is located on the narrowest part of the island of Fårö, just over two kilometres from the long Sudersand Strand on the opposite side of the island. Depending on which direction the sometimes rather unpleasantly strong wind blows from, you can switch quite quickly between the two beaches.

There is a camping site at the eastern end of the beach and the small fishing village of Ekeviken a few hundred metres further on. At the other end of the beach are the buildings of the sea rescue museum, which is located in the buildings of a former sea rescue station from 1861.
