Huk Beach (Hukkoden Strand)
The small, but pretty beach of Huk sits towards the end of the Bygdøy peninsula, just to the west of Norway’s capital, Oslo. Backed by parkland this is one of the best, and most popular beaches within easy striking distance (5 km) of the city; therefore don’t be surprised that it gets a little busy during the summer.
Huk is divided into two beaches, with a small inlet separating them. The eastern beach is somewhat larger, while the smaller beach to the west is a naturist beach. Both are backed by grassy areas with plenty of trees for shade.
The water at Huk is fairly shallow which keeps it a little warmer and makes it popular for swimming. On the western side of the beach is a diving platform, whilst the beach itself has a volleyball court.
Huk beach has a good range of places to eat and all the facilities you need for a family day out. For those with a penchant for art there are some sculptures in the park just behind the beach from world renown artist including Henry Moore and Anne Sofie Døhlen.
You can reach the beach at Huk most easily be bicycle or the number 30 bus from downtown Oslo to Ro.
