Råå Vallars Badplats

Beach in Helsingborg

Råå Vallars Badplats is a popular 1,500 meter long bathing beach in Råå, the southernmost district of Helsingborg. Its name comes from the more than 300-year-old rampart that was once built about 100 meters behind the shoreline to protect against Danish invasion.

The northern end of the beach is located at the campsite Råå Vallar Resort. The beach consists on the first 500 meters of fine sand with a shallow, child-friendly shore. In the further course to its southern end until the marina Råå Råå Vallars Badplats consists increasingly of smoothly ground pebbles.

In the area of the wide northern beach section as well as at the south end of the beach just before the marina are snorkel paths. The underwater paths are marked with buoys and signs on the sea floor explain the marine flora and fauna.

There are several bathing jetties and piers throughout the beach. There are also several toilets and showers, including two disabled toilet facilities. Several kiosks and barbecue areas as well as playgrounds and a mini golf course are available as well as rescue equipment, first aid equipment and defibrillators.

A 200-meter-long dog beach is located near the bathhouse at the southern beach section.
