Hunnebostrand view

Hunnebostrand 05.07.23

The harbour and Strandgatan in Hunnebostrand really come alive during the summer with its lively marina and authentic boathouses, small shops and high-class restaurants. The guest harbour is actually one of the most popular in Western Sweden, especially for families. Visit to the characteristics fish shop is almost obligatory - or you can buy freshly caught langoustines from the fisherman on Stora Gåsholmen at the Sailing Club in southern Hunnebostrand.

Hunnebostrand is also one of Bohuslän`s oldest coastal communities, dating back to the 13th century. The community grew during the great herring period 1556-1589. But it is probably the stone industry that put Hunnebostrand firmly on the map with its heydays in the late 19th century, when granite from Sotenäs was exported to the world. At the Stonemasonry Musem on the outskirts of the locality, you can learn more about the history of stonemasonry.
