In the charming Blekinge archipelago, the island of Hanö was once a base for the English naval fleet during the Napoleonic Wars. English warships still visit today to pay their respects to the Englishmen buried there.
The island’s beautiful natural surroundings offer remarkable beaches, caves and ravines all to be explored. At the harbour, there’s a restaurant open during summer and a museum that covers the history of the area.
The Hanö hostel is located in what was once the island’s village school. There are both single and double rooms and guests have access to a kitchen for self catering.
Bönsäcken, ‘The Bean Sack’, is a remarkable stone reef on the northern side of the island consisting of millions of oval-shaped stones. There are great swimming spots at Bönsäcken and off the flat slabs at northern and southern Vindhalla, and if you’re lucky you might spot one of the Asian dove-tail deer that keep the island’s vegetation in check.
