Sudersand beach is located on the little island of Fårö which sits off the end of Gotaland in the Baltic Sea, halfway between Sweden and the Balkans. The beach here is a long crescent of near white sand which stretches across a wide bay.
Beyond the beach are low grassy dunes which quickly give way to pine forest. Sudersand manages to maintain a feel of being a wonderfully natural beach but this is balanced with plenty of facilities close at hand; cafes, kiosks, ice-cream stands and even a mini golf course provide family entertainment.
This is a popular family holiday destination and just behind the beach is a large campsite. Despite the fact that Faro is only reachable by ferry, in the summer it is one of the most happening places on Sweden’s coast.
The beach is clean and and the water remains shallow for quite some way out making it perfect for a paddle.
If it ever gets too crowded for you on Sudersand, you can always walk over to neighbouring Norsta Aurar. Here on the very tip of Faro you are more or less guaranteed plenty of space to yourself. In addition, the beach here is a naturist spot.
