"Tjörn harbour" Skärhamn by Sjalen

Skärhamn Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 7 photos

Skarhamn has long been an important harbour along this part of the west coast. Its wealth has come and gone depending on the amount of herring in the seas outside. Today, it still has a few fishing families here, but is mainly famous for being a very nice place to spend your holiday. Along with Ronnang, it is the biggest municipality on the quite big island of Tjorn and this makes it full of services that smaller fishing villages might not necessarily have and so, an ideal hub where you can meet people and relax.

I'm afraid it was very rainy when we visited so the pictures are dark and doesn't do this place justice. There is also so much more for me to explore as well - I guess I just have to come back :)
