Good classic Swedish dishes and excellent seafood, the glass walls sit right on the water, making it a dramatic view whatever the weather. This place is also great for families and the staff are really friendly. Throughout the summer they offer live music and more of a party atmosphere every weekend.

A cafe in the day time and restaurant by night - they also do a really good breakfast - the cafe won't hit the wallet as hard as some other restaurants in the area and the food is excellent. Some weekends in the summer they run special bbq events, discos for the kids and a special midsummer dance. Boats and kayaks as well as SUP boards are also available to hire. Also Some basic groceries here, and ice cream.

Pretty much just salmon in this "Salmon-boutique", and you wouldn't believe how many different ways you can do it. It's decent value for money and has a superb ice cream shop. There's also a delikatessen to take home some tasty treats.

A really well laid out zoo, with an interactive farm as well. The tiger feeding is pretty dramatic. It's worth remembering that there are several communal barbecues on the site so you can easily save money by taking your own hot-dogs or sandwiches.

One of Sweden's most picturesque "summer towns" - classic wooden huts on the coast with crystal clear water to swim in.... if it's warmed up enough. Smögen is well known for its long, wooden pier, about 600 m (2,000 ft), filled with shops in old fishing huts and there are cafe's bars, restaurants and nighclubs open in the summer months.

Bike Hire
You can hire bikes at LO Multisport in Ljungskile, but you can also easily rent a bike during the summer season from both Villa Sjötorp and Anfasteröds Gårdsvik. They can be booked online at https://boka.uddevalla.com/
Trains north and south to Gothenburg from here, tickets can be used on either the train or the bus (You'll need the Väst Traffik app) - a single is about 120 SEK and allows you to travel as far as you want (within the area covered) for about 3 hours.

In Sweden you can buy beer up to 3.5% in the supermarket (they've have greatly improved the quality in the last ten years), but for anything stronger you'll need to go to Systembolaget and this is the nearest. Opening hours are limited so check online before you go - generally the store is open to 6pm daily (later on Thursdays) and till 3pm on Saturdays - it gets very busy after lunch on a Saturday when everyone realizes they are out of booze and panics.
