Discover the Beauty of the Coast
The sea has always played a big part in the lives of the people of Gothenburg. When you want to relax from city life this is where you go. A tram ticket will take you all the way out into the southern archipelago to enjoy the harsh beauty of the gray granite cliffs. Pack your swim gear and a book and head to an island such as Vrångö, Brännö, Styrsö, or Vargö. Take a walk to find your own private cliff or bay and then dive into the sea. It might be cold, but the cliffs are perfect for warming up against with their smooth, round shapes and ability to keep the heat from the sun. For a Swede, the combination of sea, cliffs, and solitude is bliss. Hungry? Bring a picnic or visit a restaurant like Brännö Värdshus or Vrångö Värdshus.
Day tripping on the southern archipelago near Gothenburg
There are over 20 islands to explore in the southern Gothenburg archipelago.

We took the ferry to pretty Donsö where Scandinavian red huts line the harbour. The trip takes about 45 minutes though it passes quickly as the scenery and fresh air are wonderful

There are a few shops and cafes to visit on Donsö or find yourself a swimming hole for a quick dip.
