The colorful beach huts and impossibly white sands of Skanör beach, Sweden

The country of Sweden calls to mind many things: meatballs, Ikea, The Ice Hotel, Ingmar Bergman. Who knew it was also home to a beach that looks like it belongs on top of a cake.

These brightly colored little beach huts sit on the pristine sands of Skanör, the scenic stretch of beach located at the south-western end of Sweden. A favorite getaway of Stockholm residents who bring the action every summer to this normally quiet coastal town, it’s been referred to as the ‘St. Tropez of Sweden’ and the ‘Swedish Riviera.’  The biggest difference between this area and its French cousin? Skanör delivers all beauty and skips the pretension.  Pass the sunscreen, and the meatballs, please.
