Description of the area The beach promenade links with the Coastal Path along the town fjord’s inner coast south west of Uddevalla centre and mainly runs along the well known wooden path skirting ”Hästepallarna´cliffs at the fjord’s steepest shoreline. The promenade starts at Svenskholmen and ends at Gustafsberg, the old bathing resort - now a summer paradise. The promenade offers a fantastic view across the town fjord, Hafstensfjord and Uddevalla bridge. Gustafsberg has lovely parks, walking paths, restaurants, a youth hostel, summer cafés, bathing jetties, grill and seating areas. Gustafsberg quay is the landing stage for Uddevalla’s archipelago traffic. For more info see

How to get there Get off the bus at the Nordens Väg stop on Göteborgsväg, a hundred metres from Svenskholmen. Or in summer at the Gustafsberg stop. The walking trail is just a short way down from here. The wooden and gravelled paths are perfect for pedestrians but cyclists are asked to dismount due to the presence of dogs, buggies and walking frames. Vehicles can be parked either at Svenskholmen, or in the Gustafsberg area.

Access details The beach promenade has a large amount of comfortable seating spots, as well as barbecue areas. Nearest toilet for disabled is in the Gustafsberg area. Well marked disabled parking bays can be found at Svenskholmen and in the Gustafsberg area. The quay for the fjord and island ”white boats”, as well as the boats themselves have wheelchair access. The boats are also adapted for better general access. Foto: Ingrid Karlsson
