Beach on Koster Islands in West Sweden
Sunset over beach at Kosterhamnen on the Koster Islands, Sweden (Alistair Wearmouth)

The curving cove here means the waters are nicely sheltered and ideal for families. The ferry from Stromstad makes its first stop on the islands at the small pier at Kosterhamnen.

Kosterhamnen is a gently curving bay that is one of the first points of the islands that see from the ferry as it arrives from Stromstad. There's also a pier at one end (Kilesands) where ferry passengers can disembark. The long beach here is good
