Havang beach is situated on the east coast of Skåne, and is part of what is a seemingly endless stretch of fine golden sand to the north of the town of Kivik. Widely regarded as the best beach in Österlen this is a beautiful and wild spot.
Beyond the beach is a wonderful rural landscape of meadows and woodlands beyond which rise low hills. This rolling countryside is popular walking country and encompasses the Backaleden and Österlenleden trails.
Overlooking the beach at Haväng as a very impressive Stone Age burial site - Havängsdosen. This consists of a stone chamber with a massive cap stone on top which is surrounded by 16 large standing stones. Visit on the right day and this places is incredibly atmospheric.
Haväng beach is divided by the Verkeån river. It is easy enough to paddle across as it fizzles out in the sand. It makes a fascinating feature for kids to play in and also attracts the occasional roaming cow or horse from nearby farms.
