Welcome to the beach this summer!

Beach season is upon us and Ystad has some of the nicest beaches in Sweden. But even though there's room for everyone, things can get a bit cramped elsewhere. By this we mean the emergency access roads from Österleden down to the beach at Sandskogen. Please don't park your car there, as in the case of an accident the emergency services must be able to access the beach with their vehicles – for your own safety and peace of mind.

Why not cycle or take the bus to the beach instead? There are no less than three cycle paths to choose from in Ystad! One in Sandskogen, one along Österleden and one along the beach. Did you know that there are also three bus routes to choose from: numbers 5, 322 and 570? To make things easier, we've put together an all-in-one summer timetable, so you can see when the buses depart for and from the beach and which routes they follow. If you're unsure about how to pay for the journey, please call Skånetrafiken on 0771-77 77 77.

And if you really have to take your car, once again we've opened the gravel car park at Sandskogen Sports Field. And this summer the car park will remain open later – until 8 o'clock every evening.

Ystad Municipality wishes you a great summer!
