More information and tips are available at kattegattleden.se 20 From Båstad harbour, you follow the sea until you reach the pine forest in Hemmeslöv and cross the border between Halland and Skåne. A less challenging stretch along Laholmsbukten’s long sandy beach now awaits. In familyfriendly Skummeslövsstrand you’ll find restaurants and cafes. The sea is shallow and the landscape wide open. A few kilometres inland lies beautiful Skottorp Palace and cosy Laholm, Halland’s oldest town. It takes around 20 minutes to get from the path to Laholm. A couple of kilometres north of Skummeslövsstrand, you’ll come to Mellbystrand, a seaside resort with memories from times past. There, the dunes are higher and the sea wilder. You’ll pass ice cream shops, minigolf courses and cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating. North of Mellbystrand is a stretch along sand dunes, through a beach forest and nature reserve, past Laxvik and out into open country south of Halmstad. Before you leave the sea, you can stop at Påarp’s burial ground with its 220 Iron Age graves. The path then passes Östra Stranden before it reaches Halmstad Castle.
