It’s about an hour drive from Klädesholmen to the more bustling town of Lysekil in Western Sweden. Along the way, E6 gives way to local roads where rolling green hills with granite cliffs are the norm.

Once arriving in Lysekil, it’s easy to just spend time wandering around the center of town. But, for those with time, hop on the local ferry to Skaftö, an island opposite Lysekil’s south harbor. The old fishing villages on the island are nothing short of quiet and relaxing where the call of gulls and the buzzing of bees take center stage against the calm waters and old homes.

The island, which is only five miles long and three miles wide, boasts gorgeous views and nature every step of the way.

Fiskebäckskil is particularly beautiful and it offers hours of simply wandering among rocks where the shore laps up against the stunning village.
