Homborsund Lighthouse reviews
The most beautiful place along our southern coast. You can use it throughout the Year. Closer to the sea is not possible to be.

Simple basic accommodation and tranquility! Basic amenities are available (e.g. electric power supply) but not drinking water. Come a bit prepared.
