Archipelago life on Sturkö - Blekinge's largest island

Go by bike and visit cafés on Sturkö. Blekinge's largest island attracts with lovely bathing coves and fine fishing waters.

On the island there are two nature reserves, one at Västra Skällön, here there you will find a runestone which dates back to the end of the Viking Age, the 1000s after Christ. The other nature reserve is located at Uttorp and is much larger and popular among visitors all year round. There are marked hiking trails, windbreaks and barbecue areas. A nice and sunny day you may see all the way to the distant islands of Utklippan.

The mill at Sturkö is open to visits during summer. Coffee, refreshments and lunch can be enjoyed in the Mill-café. The view from the scecond floor is nice, exhibitions by various artists are available all summer. On the island there is also the charming archipelago bakery "Andréns bageri" (bakery), a family business that is very much appreciated by both Sturkö residents and summer guests. The bakery is open on Saturdays throughout the year and every day during the summer. Sturkö Camping is located in the middle of the archipelago, with a string of islands as neighbor. The swimming area is great for children, you can rent a boat, kayaks and bicycles. Two small guest harbors can be found on the island, at Sanda and at Ekenabben. In the old days, the islands Tjurkö and Sturkö, among others, used to be an extensive stonemasonry, the statue of a man carving stone, stands as a monument of this time, at Folkets Hus on Sturkö. Nice bike paths are marked with signs. Archipelago boat calls at Sanda, during summer, and at Bredaviksbrygga all year round.
