"Vibrant city beach with Mediterranean atmosphere"
Fria bad or Örestrandbadet is a city beach located in the center of Helsingborg city. It is marketed as the Copacabana of Helsingborg but most may first associate it with the Mediterranean Rivieras. It certainly has a summer and party vibe to it. The beach can be very crowded during peak season. Three piers extend from the sand which has some gravel mixed in it. It is limited both in the north and south of constructions and lined by roads and houses. There is no shade on the beach. Follow a nice walk from this beach southwards to the city harbor. On the other side of the Sound is the Danish coastline. Just south of the beach is a new cold bath house (year 2012) with huge windows offering generous views over the sea. Slightly further south is the wooden deck Gröningen and then follows the exotic and youthful Parapeten.
