Drove, walked, sailed and ate. Probably the best part of this part of Sweden. The ferry is free. The beaches are open and amazing. Nothing here not to like.

We went in winter AND on a weekday, so all the islands were absolutely deserted with barely a sole in sight most of the day. But we loved the change of pace and seaside fresh air. If you like nature and walking and exploring a little then you'll love a day out here. We got a transport card in the morning (for 80 sek each) which covered all trams, buses and ferries for the day - I'd definitly recommend this if you don't have a city pass or anything and you're wanting to 'island hop' like we did for the day. We went to Branno first, then Aspero, Kopstadso and finally Styrso. I liked Kopstadso the best - quiet lanes, pretty picnic spots by the sea etc. If you're going in the winter though and are wanting a coffee and cake break, head to the 'Bratten' ferry stop on Styrso - it was the only cafe we found that was open! And they do amazing rubarb crumble tarts and other yummy treats. Remember to wrap up really warm. Put on what you'd wear in Gothenburg for the day then ADD another jacket and a scarf - the wind is cold out on those Islands in the winter :-)

We got on the number 11 tram from the city centre - about 45 minutes. The boat times are co ordinated so we didn't have to wait for a boat. The trip was 20 minutes we then had a lovely un spoilt walk around Branno. We had planned to stay for a couple of hours and ended up staying for 4 hours - a back to nature trip, we laughed loads as we walked the marshy land following the nature trail - wet feet by all.

The southern archipelago of Sweden is really interesting to walk. It is a windy area (take a jacket anf fix your hat!). Hönö is one of the numerous islands.
From Göteborg, you must take a ferry (free). We traveled by car but you can also go by bus (The bus goes from the Nils Ericson bus terminal in central Göteborg to the ferry terminal at Lilla Varholmen.). It is about 15 minutes to get to Hönö Island.
You can walk on the rocks by the sea; the landscapes are wonderful especially if it is a sunny day. Simply breathing such fresh air worth the excursion.
You must also taste the shrimp sandwich; we went to a nice typical restaurang : Tullhuset.
Try to locate the entrance (which is nowadays blocked with big stones) of an old bunker.

Especially the smaller souther islanda like Vangö, where no cars are allowed, are absolutely worth a visit. Even just by taking the boeat ride around the islands (you can board with the same ticket you use for any other publich transport in the city) you and get a unique view of the nordic coast with it's tiny rocks and islands looking out from the water viturally everywhere.

The only issue we found was that there were no shops or cafés open in the winter season.
