LISTERLANDET | All senses love Listerland. Smells, tastes, sounds and feelings. On the way to Listerlandet, the lungs are filled with country air of the best kind. First with a faint hint of barnyard and manure, then of alderwood smoke, sea and seaweed. You hear the cheers of the MAIF crowd, the screeching of the seagulls, the calm thump of the fishing boats and a jazz band in the August night. Beaches and picturesque fishing villages lie like a string of pearls along the peninsula's eight-mile coast. Here it's easy to feel good and live well! The most beautiful way to enter Hällevik is down the steep Haveliden hill. The view of the sea and Kråkenabben far down there is breathtaking. In Hällevik you can swim, enjoy the range of the smokehouse and restaurants, the genuine environment, football and jazz. The fishing museum and Old Fishing Day give an insight into how life was lived in the past in the fishing village.
A stone's throw away is Nogersund with Kråkenabben, a windswept pasture landscape with the properties framed by beautiful stone fences. There are several exciting hiking trails here.
