"Calm, long, white beach with wooden pier, a ribbon of bath huts & gemstones"
Ljungsskogen – Ljunghusen beach is a lovely long stretch of white sand lined by grassy sand dunes hosting among them a large number of small white bath cabanas, and further inland pine trees. The beach is located in Kämpinge Bay just west of the canal that separates Skanör-Falsterbo from the main land of Skåne. There are several parking areas along the beach, the largest one is located close to the canal. In high season there is a fee for parking and it can be difficult to find a spot if not arriving early. There are boardwalks along Ljungskogen beach that leads down to the water from the sand dunes. A robust, wooden, and some 100 meters long pier with ladders and benches extends over the very shallow and usually clear water. The calm waves create ripples on the sandy sea bottom. When we last visited this beach there was virtually no seaweed, just a few non-toxic/ non-stingy jellyfish. The view towards the east offers Falsterbo canal constructions and to the west the natural cape “Stenudden” hiding a golf course and further west bird nesting areas with lagoons and reed vegetation. The atmospere at this beach is usually more relaxed compared to other nearby beaches such as Kämpinge and Skanör. In the eastern part of this beach is a disabled friendly bath with specially equipped piers.
