Part of Raet National Park inaugurated 2017. A lovely place for enjoying sunbathing on the cliffs, a swim, a picnic or simply the scenery. A popular area at any time of the year.

If you are in Arendal, visiting Hove is a must. It is one of the most beautiful seaside areas in Norway, and there are plenty of possibilities for those wanting a long (or short) walk. Always windy, so pack your anorack before you go.
