The Crystal clear wather. The white sands, the sound of waves hitting shore and the horizon. This is what you get on Karmoy beaches. Get dressed for what ever nature brings you. Bring buckets and shuffels. Play in the sand and imagine what it looks...More

Beatiful, sandy beaches, a bit cold in the water though... but July/August you might get it around 20 degrees celsius. But a great place for a picnic, maybe a surf or just enjoying nature.
