Böda beach is located on the east coast of the island of Öland. The island is only a few kilometres off the coast of mainland Sweden, but Boda sits towards the very northern tip making it quite remote. However, with nearly 20 km of unbroken white sand forming a huge arching bay it is well worth the trip.
This vast expanse of beach is very much unspoilt with the blue of Baltic Sea to one side and low dunes and pine forest behind. Towards the southern end there are a couple of large camping ground and this is where you will find all the facilities; i.e. toilets, showers, cafe etc. This is the area you will also find most of the activities going on, particularly beach games like volleyball and soccer. The beach also hosts an annual beach-run which involves sections of running through waste-deep water. Slightly less strenuous is the nearby golf course.
It takes around 5 hours to get to Böda from Stockholm. But this is a great beach with excellent camping right next to it. For this reason it is immensely popular in the summer, but given the vast length of the beach you will always be able to find a quiet stretch of sand to yourselves.
