Active life on the South Coast
Feeling sporty – or longing for a refreshing breath of fresh air?
The landscape around Trelleborg is varied and interesting. From the long beaches along the coast, over the seemingly endless plains, to the lakes and hills in the north. Nature is an adventure in itself with all of its variations and nuances. Get your pulse going with a long bike ride or go for a hike along the coast. Regardless of what you decide to do, it will include a real dose of fresh air. Create your own adventure from your bike saddle or on foot along the Pilgrim Trail, discover what life is like under the water’s surface, go bird watching, try the mountain biking tracks or enjoy a whole day in one of our nature reserves.
Kite & Windsurfing
Kiteboarders and windsurfers have truly found their home on the South Coast of Skåne. The beaches are easily accessible, and there are plenty of spots to choose from depending on the direction of the winds. From west to east, you’ll find: Skåre Skansar, Beddingestrand to Skateholm, Abbekås and Mossbystrand.
Do you want to see eelgrass, sea anemones, or starfish? Put on your goggles, snorkel, and fins, and take a tour on Skåre’s snorkeling trail! Like a nature trail, but underwater, east of Skåre Harbor. Information signs are located at a depth of 1-2 meters and provide insights into the rich marine life. The signs are equipped with handles for snorkelers to hold onto.
Paddle is a trend that is here to stay. Perhaps it’s because of the inclusive atmosphere where beginners and experienced players, young and old, can come together and have fun? In Trelleborg, there are many courts available, both indoor and outdoor. And when you play near the beach, you have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim in the sea after the game!
There are four nature reserves with unique environments around Trelleborg and along the South Coast. Visit Dalköpinge ängar, Beddinge strandhed or Fårabackarna. Outside Skåre there is also a marine reserve with a snorkelling trail and close by you can find Maglarps sandtag with healthy populations of solitary bees and sand martins.
Hiking is a fantastic way of getting away from everyday stress and checking in with yourself. With Trelleborg as a starting point, you can follow the Skåne Trail northwards over the plains or eastwards along the coast. You can also hike the pilgrim trail along Mariavägen where pilgrims have walked between monasteries for centuries.
The best way to explore Trelleborg and the South Coast could be on two wheels. Get to great swimming spots easily, get close to interesting sites and make a stop at one of the farm stores or a café when it suits you. If you want to go on a longer ride, follow the South Coast Trail, one of Sweden’s three national tourist biking routes.

Take care of our nature
When you go for a walk in the forest or paddle a kayak, take the bike through the landscape you use the right of public access. In order for everyone to enjoy nature we need to take care of it and it´s wildlife and show consideration for landowners and others who are outdoors. The ground rule is “Don´t disturb- don´t destroy”. Here are some important things to have in mind while being in the Swedish nature:
– When you ride or cycle in the terrain, there is a risk of damaging the ground. Do not ride or cycle over soft, fragile ground or on designated jogging tracks, ski tracks or hiking trails.
– If you cross enclosed pastureland, do not disturb animals or damage fences. Close the gate after you so that livestock doesn’t get out.
– Camping, caravans and motor homes have to be in a suitable place and remember to ask permission from landowners or not close to a residence.
– Always take your rubbish with you. Glass, tins and plastic can injure both people and animals. We all want a clean nature!
– Campfires are amazing but do not start a fire when it is dry in the nature. Watch the news or contact the local municipality to be sure lightning fires not is prohibited. Be careful and be sure to thoroughly extinguish the fire. Leave no trace of the fire.
