Capri - Strømstad's finest beach?
Updated: Nov 25, 2018
Strømstad has many nice beaches, but those of Capri are perhaps the most beautiful. Here you can see the "Sekken" and the archipelago that merges with the Hvalerøyene on the Norwegian side.
Capri is a nature conservation area with a distinctive nature. Here you will find both a sandy beach and a beach with smooth rocks. If you want to lie in the shade of a tree and look out over the sea, you can retreat to the open pine forest right behind the sandy beach.
Or you can find a place behind the reeds.
Or go over to the other side of the pier where there is a larger area of smooth, warm rocks.
When the sun is approaching the horizon, the pebbles and smooth rocks are still hot. There are no mountains or hills that shadows. The sun sets in the ocean or in the low islands on the horizon.
Between the beach with the smooth rocks and the sandy beach there is an area of time-share cabins. Here you can buy access for a few weeks a year, or just rent if you wish. Most of the cabins have sea view.
Buches and grass tell a story of a tough climate, but when it's blowing from the east, it's virtually windless. If you want to go for a walk, you have a pretty big area to enjoy with varied scenery. Even in high season there is plenty of space. Here you do not have to queue.
Capri holiday village is located right behind the conservation area. Here you can rent a cottage for a weekend or a week or buy yourself a share in a particular cabin by the time share principle at the most affordable prices.
