Vaxholm to Sandhamn

25 August 2013


Sandhamn 2

Today we took the same ferry line that got us from Stockholm to Vaxholm farther out into the Stockholm archipelago. The ferry terminates at Sandhamn, which is a small island without paved roads and mostly without cars (I saw one car). There are gravel walking paths covering the island, and there isn’t really much point in having a car here, since everything is within a 20 minute walk.

Most of the islands of the Stockholm archipelago are rocky, but Sandhamn has a couple of small sandy beaches. The port feels very much like a beach town that does a significant trade with boaters. Boating seems to be the primary activity here, with the harbor filled with sailing boats and power yachts. There is one large hotel and several restaurants.
