Utklippan is Sweden’s most south-easterly group of islands and is made up of two low-lying skerries – Norraskär and Södraskär. Between the
two small islands lies a sheltered guest harbour. The southern skerry is the location of the former lighthousekeeper’s station. The fortification with the beacon is now a historic building, and from the tower you have a fantastic view of the seal colony, the infinite vistas and the barren landscape. Stay in the unique youth hostel. The boat trip here takes roughly 1 hour from Karlskrona or if you go by RIB, about 30 min.
Kristianopel - a gem
An idyllic village from the 17th century also known as "The thousand roses village". Smell the roses and the sea, hike on the mighty wall that frames the village and reminds us of the former Danish times. Take a swim from the pier or from one of the bathing areas. Sit on the dock and enjoy the boat life in the harbor. In Kristianopel you will find several small shops, cozy cafes and eateries.
