Archipelago island


A quiet and genuine island with good places for swimming.

In the middle of Gothenburg’s archipelago lies Fotö. The island is busy during the summer and a visit to the cafe with a view over the sea and the boats is an unforgettable experience.

Fotös swimming spots have diving boards, diving towers and bridges. If you want to find your very own favourite spot, you can head to the island’s northwestern part, Tån.

In the 17th century the island’s urban-focus was at the port but now houses are all around the island. For those interested in history there are many ancient monuments left to visit.

Between Hönö and Fotö there is a bridge.
