Knäbäckshusens Strand (Rörum)
Stretching for nearly four kilometres along southern Sweden’s Baltic Sea coast is the beach of Knäbäckshusens Strand. Also known as Rörums Strand, the beach here is made up of a wonderfully fine, pale golden sand backed by dense pine forest. This gives the beach a beautiful, pristine and wild feel which is only further enhance by how quiet it is. Knäbäckshusens Strand si definitely one of the finest beaches in Sweden’s Skåne region.
Like other beaches on the eastern side of Skåne there can be a strong undertow so a degree of caution is essential if you intend to swim here. On the other hand the water remains shallow for a long way out so it takes a concerted effort to get out of one’s depth.
The beach gets its name from the nearby village and extends northwards into the Stenshuvuds National Park where it becomes Stenshuvuds Strand. From the car park here it is a lovely walk down to the beach past a number of thatched cottages and through woodland. Just behind the beach, near Knäbäckshusen village is the tiny wooden chapel of Knäbäckskapellet which offers a beautiful backdrop for summer weddings.
