Ribersborg, Klagshamn, Sibbarp and Västra hamnen
has five popular bathing places, all located at
the coast of Öresund. Two beaches have comfortable
white sand, one a great green area and the other
two spacious wooden decks. Common for every one
of them is that the water quality is so good, that
they can display Blue Flag.
The beaches are also popular walking areas all year
long, especially those evenings when the sky is
coloured purple red in west.
Ribersborg, in popular speech called “Ribban”
and in tourist brochures “Scandinavian Copacabana”,
is a three kilometres long beach with both sand
and big green lawns. The waters are shallow, therefore
suitable for children. Here we have also Ribersborgs
Kallbadhus – an open-air bath house built in 1898, a 300 m off the shore. The bath has separate
departments for ladies and gentlemen, where they
can swim naked.
Ribersborg beach is one of few beaches in Europe
that is situated less than ten minutes by bike
from the town's very centre.
Two new and popular bathing places you will
find in Västra Hamnen. The first is Scaniabadet - a gigantic wooden deck, 75x20 metres, with three
piers; the second one is Sundspromenaden (Sound Promenade) where there are special piers
for easy reach for the deep waters.
Sibbarp is situated in the district called Limhamn, about 5 km from the Ribersborg.
The beach is long, with splendid green areas,
lots of piers, and a bay fit for the young children.
Around Sibbarp you can also go wind-surfing or
fishing, right next to the marina.
Naturally you have magnificent view over the Öresund
Bridge from every of Malmö’s beaches,
but the best one is from Klagshamn, more south
of the city. Also this beach has great white sand.
Sea bathing all
As mentioned above, you can swim in the waters of Öresund
all year round in Ribersborg Kallbadhus. It is recently renovated - its two saunas have large, wide windows
with a great view, which makes autumn and winter
sea bathing most enjoyable. The kallbadhusÂ´cafÃ© is also a popular place for non-bathing visitors.
Also Sibbarp has a Cold Bathhouse, and also there, the view from the sauna window is astonishing.
Chance to bath nude you have in the southern part
of Ribersborg beach, close to the marina Lagunen
at the pier No. 10.
