Råå vallar is a beach located between Helsingborg city and Råå marina. The beach got its name after the defense walls that were constructed here after the Danish invasion in the early 18th century. It is a blue flag beach, which implies it is particularly equipped and safe. Along Råå vallar beach are several wooden piers with stairs down the shallow water. The sand is mixed with gravel and further south just cobbles and boulders. For those who prefer grass to gravelly sand there are grass fields available for recreation adjacent to the beach. There is no shade on the beach. There are two snorkeling tracks in the water, one in the northern part of the beach and one in the southern. The first one is composed by signs in the water that allows you to learn about marine life while the second is composed by a number of quiz questions. They are suitable for both children and adults, bring your own gear. For those who prefer a good sauna there is a cold bath house with nice views over the sea. There is also a naturist beach located close to Råå vallar, Knähaken. On clear days you may enjoy a view of the Danish coastline just across the Sound and the many ships passing by.
