Popular and easily accessed island with beautiful granite cliffs, several locations to take a swim, fish, make photographs. Many come here just to walk around the island which is done in about an hour or less.

Visited both summer and winter and the island has been a pleasure to stroll around in both seasons. In summer there are a couple of great family beaches and Cliffs you can swim from (with steps into the sea), and in winter it's a great place to explore and hop between the rocks as you make your way around. Good... More

Had a fantastic day out Amundön. The scenery is stunning, it is comprised of granite outcrops, forests and heather. There are 2 small sandy beaches which the kids loved, no waves to speak of and bays are very shallow so one is able to relax a little. There are plenty of WCs dotted about but not recommended if you are... More

A very beautiful part of the Gothenburg archipelago that is accessible with public bus. Take a short walk along the gravel path and find yourself looking at the ocean. Do go for a swim too.

Stora Amundön is best to visit in the summertime with its many places to take a swim in the the sun. From the parking lot you go over the bridge to Amundön (yes it's an island). Immediately on your left side you'll see all the horses the run around freely, (from spring to autumn). If you want to you can... More

This nature preserve is a beautiful park with a well-marked walking/hiking trail around the island. This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Gothenburg area. The trail is easy to follow and it includes information stations that tell the history and describe the surroundings.

There's a nude beach at the south west corner of the island. It's rather far to walk, and the last part is tricks because you need to "climb" over a rocky hill, but it's worth it. The beach is mostly made up of rocks with a small sand strip in the middle. There a toilet, but no other amenities, at... More

If you are unable or you lack the time to go to the islands in the southern archipelago, this is a nice alternative, but obviously not as nice as the islands further out. Stora Amundön is approximatively12 km from the center of the city. There is a beautiful walking path around the island and a couple of places to go... More

You can easy go there by bus or car. You stroll around the island by foot. No vehicle is allowed, so it is a very quiet and cozy. There is a small playa there for the children, but i prefer to have a picnic on the cliffs and enjoy the nice view and fresh air from the sea.

nice bathing spot with a sandy beach for the little kids and stairs for swimming directly into the sea for the adults, easy to park and a great place to fish for crabs in which all children love :-) as a tourist in Gothenburg this is a perfect place to visit.
