Welcome to Sandhamn, a classic destination as well as an international sailing centre in the Stockholm archipelago. Around 90 people currently live on the island called Sandön all year round.
The island of Sandhamn
The village is full of typical archipelago houses and narrow alleyways, with shops, restaurants, hotels, a coffee shop and a bakery. Sandhamn Hotell & Konferens and Sandhamns Värdshus date right back to the 17th century and are open all year round. Outside the village, there is an old cemetery, where the worn grave crosses still carry the names of sailors from all over the world. The island offers excellent bathing facilities, or if you prefer just sunbathe on a sandy beach or relax on the sun-warmed cliffs.
