Once with stone slabs leads all the way to the beach. Barbecue area and several beach volleyball networks can keep you occupied. The area is a nature reserve with paths to tunnel caves, gorges, large relocation blocks, pebble stones and giant potholes, so there is much to discover. Do not miss the handicap-friendly path to Lake Klubbsjön, where you can also swim. Large parking which is still packed with hot days.

Here the river and sea meet
TIMRÅ Smackgrundet is a little hidden at the mouth of the Indalsälven in the delta. You walk on paths, footpaths and bridges out to the kilometer-long little coarse-grained sandy beach. Here you can work on the tan in the white places because the northern part is official naturist bath.
