When traveling there is only one rule I always follow: Go where the locals go. This time it lead me to crystal clear water, the rugged beauty of granite shores, magical sunsets and a vibrant city with a strong working-class, unpretentious vibe.

The real charm of Gothenburg is not only it’s vibrant city – but it’s location on the Kattegat – the arm of the North Sea separating Denmark from Sweden. After having received several suggestions from our family and friends living in Gothenburg, we set out on a hike to one of the most beautiful beaches – a real local hidden gem.
