Beach

Myndir fra Emmu 006

The beach with beautiful golden sand and crystal clear water is only 5-10 minutes walk away. It is about 2-3km long and is ideal for a romantic evening walk while watching the setting of the midnight sun. Although swimming and sunbathing is not common amongst the handful of local people, for those who are used to swimming in colder waters, the beach is ideal for a refreshing swim in the ocean.

If you rent a horse it is great fun to ride along the beach or even let the horse swim a little.
