Skrea Strand is a particularly pleasant sandy stretch of beach just across the river from the large town of Falkenberg. It has grown in popularity since the early 1900s becoming something of an established resort by the 1930s.

The long (over 1km) beach is made up of fine, near white sand, that has been blown into low dunes at the back of the beach by the winter winds. Tucked away among these dunes are a multitude of little wooden chalets which serve as summer homes, or rentals.

To cement Skrea Strand’s reputation as a resort beach there is a pier towards the northern end. Reaching 250 metres out into the Kattegat strait this offers a chance to get some exhilarating sea-air and enjoy the views back to the beach.
