Worth a Trip: Löderups Strandbad

The Baltic resort of Löderups Strandbad, 4km east of Ales Stenar, has an inviting long, white sandy beach that is perfect for relaxing – as long as you visit outside school holidays.

To stay here, try Löderups Strandbads Camping, on the edge of the Hagestad Nature Reserve; nearby STF Vandrarhem Backåkra, on the main road, a short stroll from the beach; or family-run Löderups Strandbad Hotell, a popular summer spot.

The easiest way to get to Löderups Strandbad is by car. From Ystad, head east on Rte 9 for about 10km until you reach Östra Kustvägen. From here it's another 11km to Löderups Strandbad – you'll pass the turnoff for Ales Stenar on the way.
