Laröd or Larödbaden is a small beach north of Helsingborg city. You reach it through the road Serpentinvägen, a winding drive down the slope. This is a good option if you want more space than the city beaches can offer in peak season. Low bushes, a road and further inland deciduous trees line the beach. No shade is provided on the beach. The flat sandy beach is mixed with gravel and some crushed shells and the sea bottom is also gravelly in the near shore section. Further out in the sea the bottom is sandier and softly rippled by the waves. There is a cement pier with several stairs that facilitates reaching this area. From the parking there is a boardwalk all the way to the pier. Seaweed in the water and on the beach is frequent, especially after windy days. Towards the south one views the city of Helsingborg while it is natural towards the north. Straight across the highly trafficked Sound is the Danish coast. There is a ca. 100 long section located north of the pier where dogs are allowed to swim in the sea.
