Legendary Beaches

A panorama of the Beautiful Skagsanden beach. The streams flowing from the nearby mountains mix the black and white sand to create wonderfully intricate patterns. Add towering mountains and nice sunset light, and the result is very pleasing.

As if the locations mentioned above weren't enough, the Lofoten Islands are home to a disproportionately large number of beautiful beaches. Names like Utakleiv, Haukland and Skagsanden are familiar to many nature-lovers, but that's just the beginning. Many lesser-known beaches, such as Eggum, Myrland and Yttersand (among others) are fascinating as well, and offer a wonderful range of seascapes, each more special than the other. For brevity, I'll restrict myself to the most well-known beaches, but the curious reader can look up the others, too.
