Long before we had children, we came here to enjoy the sun that went down into the sea, the bars and restaurants at the harbor, the music, the boats, the pastel-colored old fine wooden houses, the slick alleys, the trails and the enormously picturesque feeling of a bygone era which cannot get more attractive! We got married here, we had a restaurant and a cafe here, we visited dad here who started Klockargården 20 years ago and we have a summer house here.
Then came the kids. And then we discovered secrets such as the cliffs, the bathing places, the ice cream shops with the many different kinds of sprinkles, the playgrounds, the forest with blueberries, the frogs, the lizards, the tennis for all ages, the kayaks, the sailing camp, the riding school, the golf course for both large and small, the best pancakes, the best pancakes, where one can hang without being afraid of falling in the water or running infront of cars, fishing spots, The World Champion Boat Race Week, etc
When we get older I can imagine that we do like the other older couples by the sea, we take a dip in the sea every day!
The family has as a tradition to go down to the rocks when the sun shines late, and experience the most unique on the east coast: watching the sun go down into the sea! Exactly what Evert Taube is singing about and exactly what adds a magical touch to the whole of Öregrund!
Welcome to discover this fantastic harbor & sea gem and create your own memories! Below is a selection of outings!
Daughter and owner Jennifer Grahn with family & Dad Olle - Founder
"At Strandnära's dining you can enjoy good archipelago dishes along with a locally brewed beer or a good wine. Once or twice a week we also invite different bands for gigs or have wine, beer tastings."
"In a small boathouse in the middle of the idyllic Öregrund, Melker Andersson runs the fish and shellfish Bojabäs during the summer. Of course, the signature dish is the French classic Bouillabaisse, but in Melker's own archipelago style.
Welcome! Best wishes Melker with staff! "
"Sharing is caring, ie sharing is caring, is something we strongly believe in at Söderströms Veranda. Sharing the food is something we have done in ancient times. To gather around the dining table to enjoy a meal together and to socialize, discuss, laugh or exchange ideas is a universal way of getting to know each other.
At Söderströms, we continue on the same theme we introduced last year, namely to serve small dishes inspired by the Orient, but with our own twist. We believe in conversation around the dining table and sharing the food invites to conversation. "
Although we are going to run our own self-serving waffle cafe this year, nothing goes against Kafe Wilma's pastries, good lunches or latte!

The Boat Race Contest World Champion
"The boat week is most easily described as a festival week that offers boat experiences and entertainment for all interests and ages.
During the day, activities are offered in the form of boat races, family activities, after beach, entertainment and really everything that can be desired on a hot summer day.
In the future, the area changes its shape into a more typical festival area where guest artists and Dj's play in the morning hours.
The boat week takes place between 27 July - 3 August 2019 and ends with the Roslagsloppet on 3 August. "Text from Visit Roslagen

Here you can go by train with the rubber rings (be careful!) And land straight in the water among frogs and fish. It is a completely unique place where we take the children several times during the summer!
