"Sea, sun and seals at picturesque Mollösund" Mollösund by sim1

Mollösund Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 6 photos

Mollösund is a small village with a little harbour on the southwest part of the island of Orust and it is one of my favourite places. It just feels great sitting in the restaurant on the pier, 10 yards from the main "touristy sea highway", watching hundreds of sailing boats passing in an hour, sipping a cold drink ...

But of course you don't need to be only 'lazy' in Mollösund. This is one of the areas oldest fishing ports, with a history dating back to the 16th century. It is a lovely village to explore on foot and enjoy the old and colourful houses that are concentrated around the harbour. If you are at the harbour, look out for the big sailing boat called "Mathilda", because this could be your chance to see a bit more of the archipelago surrounding Mollösund as well! The Schooner Mathilda organizes several tours during the summer, and it is really worth it! If you are lucky and the weather is good, they will turn off the engine, put up the sails and go sailing for 'real'.
