Description

At the Sandemar nature reserve, you’ll find a rich historical landscape with beautiful beach meadows that are perfect for birdwatching. In the spring, enjoy hundreds of snakeshead fritillary flowers as you walk towards the sea through the grazed pastures. Sandemar is a year-round hotspot for birdlife and an important stop for migrating waders during the spring and autumn. Watch them from the bird observation tower by the beach meadow.

The area surrounding Sandemar is very biodiverse, with highly pristine and undisturbed wetlands just east of the Sandemar manor house. Here you’ll find many rare plants, such as bird's-eye primrose, early marsh-orchid, fen orchid and marsh helleborine. This special area is maintained using traditional methods that preserve its unique biodiversity.

The area is perfect for hiking and you can enjoy the view from the mountain Höggarnsberget. In the eastern part of the reserve, you’ll find the Sandemar manor house, built in the late 1600’s. It is one of the few remaining manors that were not destroyed by Russian raids in 1719.
