Where is it?


The house is set in the middle of the island with 300 meters to the nearest shop and about 500 meters to the harbour and the sea that offers good fishing.
There are a few small cliff-beaches set within a 5 to 10 min walking distance.
The island also has its local fishmonger and a brilliant gastro pub set with sea views.
The only way to get to Björkö is by taking your car on the 5 min ferry crossing only.
Björkö is situated just outside Göteborg, and it’s easy to see that fishing has played an important role for centuries. The harbour in Björkö is still the natural centre of the island and an attractive meeting place during summer.

The fabulous location of Björkö between Göteborg and the summer resort Marstrand has attracted holidaying summer guests since the 19th century. The seaside resort atmosphere is still enjoyed today and in the harbour boat tourists, summer guests and locals meet for a walk in the evening sun or a bite to eat in the inviting tavern by the harbour.
Björkö also has sea kayaks for hiring which is a perfect way to discover the gorgeous archipelago of small islands just outside the island.

Gothenburgh city is a 5 min ferry crossing and a 20 min drive away and offers brilliant restaurants,nightlife, shopping,huge fun park Liseberg and lots of museums etc.
The airport Landvetter is 50 min drive and the closer airport is Gothenburgh Säve which is about a 20 min drive.
