“You have to have been there to understand,” sings the local troubadour, Terje Nilsen, describing Mjelle in a song. In the summer, many excursions end at Mjelle, both weekends and weekdays. You don’t have to be a child to collect shells or build sand castles, or to enjoy a good ball game. Bring firewood and cooking equipment if you want to barbecue.

You need a car to get there (or hike a while from the busstop) but you get something in return. Great sandy beaches in a special environment. I was here on a day when it was 26C and swimming was mandatory. The water was ice cold, but cristal clear and it was amazing. Despite the great weather only a few... More

A Norwegian singer-songwriter has made this beach famous in a much played recording, and we were curious to check it out ! So was a lot of other people, so the whole area was teeming with people hiking. It was quite nice, but I've seen more spectacular beaches in the north of Norway and far less crowded. The thing I...

This amazing area is a must if you are visiting Bodø. The area is one of the most beautiful area close to Bodø! Mjeldevika (Mjelle beach) is very beautiful but the most scenic area is Auvika beach and Hovdsundet south west of Mjeldevika (see my attached photos and you will understand). It’s hard to believe that the photogenic Hovdsundet is... More

Mjelle is a beach you can go to when the weather is grey, and enjoy having a beautiful beach for yourself, sit down and enjoy the silence. Perfect for walking or for meditation. Summertime, when the weather is fine, this is the place to bring family to go swimming, barbecue, volleyball, football, badminton. Going here around midnight when the weather... More

Mjelle is a most beautyful area close to Bodø, Norway, If you know norwegian seek it up in your favourite music app and I if you don't understand the words, listen to the tune while you visit the surroundings of Mjelle.

The beach area. We had rented a vehicle so it was well worth it as the drive is superb. The entire place is so scenic! The beach is not particularly clean and people feel free to walk their dogs who poop all over the place. There are sheep around as well. The natural trail to the beach is fantastic. A... More
