Beaches and bathing areas

In the summer time nothing beats a refreshing dip in the sea! In Fjord Norway you find white beaches, small coves but also swimming pools. The sea temperature can some places be above 20 degrees, and if you are really lucky with the weather you can even get the impression of being a lot further south. This is due to the Gulf Stream that follows the Norwegian coastline.

The most impressive beaches are found in Jæren, in Sogn og Fjordane county and in Møre og Romsdal county.
