Fishing town on the Bay of Pukavik

Hörvik is a small fishing town on the east coast of the peninsula Listerland, about 14 kilometers east of Sölvesborg in Blekinge.

The town with about 800 residents is known since centuries as a fishing place and today it is characterized by modern fish processing plants and a large smokehouse. Despite modernization, large parts of the old town buildings and the typical fishermen's houses are still preserved.

Besides the fishing port, Hörvik has a well-equipped and sheltered guest harbor. There is a cozy restaurant, which of course has a lot of fresh fish on the menu and offers a beautiful view over the Bay of Pukavik (Pukaviksbukten) during dinner.

Hörvik is now very close connected to the neighboring Krokås, a small fishing village with its own harbor. Between the two places lies Hörviks Badplats, a nice child-friendly sandy beach. South of Hörvik is the large nature reserve Listershuvud. The nature reserve Spraglehall with a former quarry, which is used in summer as a concert location, is located north of Krokås.
