Beautiful surroundings, fabulous views. More info on trails in the area would have been nice. A bit crowded in the afternoon. Perfect outing with kids. (6 and 8)

Beautiful wandering by the sea

In Hovs Hallar you have basically 2 routes to follow, one more rugged and intense, but short, and a second more flat and family friendly, but longer.
We took the longer route and we really had a great time.

Dramatic scenery
Aug 2019 • Couples
A surprisingly rough stretch of coast. Great views and the landscape is eye catching. With a bit of a steep walk, partly almost climbing, you reach the water. We visited in s warm day so there was quite a lot of people sun bathing and swimming

WOW place! Must visit!
Jul 2019 • Friends
This is magical place and honestly cant believe that Sweden can look like this too. I had so many wow moments since we park car. The nature is incredible! It is soooo different from anything I have seen in Sweden. The views are so stunning that you cant stop be amazed.
You park your car on top of the cliff and then you can walk down to sea. The walking is quite difficult (very very many rocks) but its really worth to see.
The only bad thing is that the rocks in the sea are so slippery that is very hard to get to or out of water. I have seen many people wearing shoes inside the water too. But even is quite impossible to swim there (unless you dont mind to jump to water from rocks and then somehow get back to beach :D) You must visit this place if you are around.

Stunning nature
Jun 2019 • Family
Hovs Hallar is absolutely stunning cliff formation and a must-see if you are in the area. We stayed here for 2 nights. The hike/walk is not really accessible with a stroller so if you are traveling with young children (like we were with our 1,5year old), you’ll end up carrying them.

Hovas Hallar is a Must Visit
May 2018 • Couples
Beautiful nature and stunning rock formations. You should take a hike around the area, or if you have a bit more time, even up till Börsap. If not make suer to climb through the rocks and also go up on the hills to get a better view on the cliffs.

Absolutely Amazing!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Hovs Hallar was a place I always wanted to visit since moving to Sweden. My husband and I did it this summer. We camped and took a' swing' here. Have good shoes ready, loads of water, your swimsuit, even a picnic bag works. This landscape is so beautiful. One feels the 'rawness' of nature when here. The place is 'untouhched'. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! :) I will be back Hovs Hallar

Unique rocky beach but hard accessible
Jul 2018
We visited a hot July morning and one of us had a great time jumping from the cliff into the water. It takes appr. 10 minutes from the hotel to reach the water. Especially the last part is hard accessible.
