Svanesund is located by the strait between the eastern side of the island and the mainland. It is the second largest urban area on Orust, after Henån. Here you will find a large swimming area with several jetties and diving towers as well as large lawns to be on. The bathing area is handicapped accessible and child-friendly with good parking facilities.
The last weekend in July, the Svanesund Festival usually takes place. This festival is one of the West Coast’s largest events with about 2000-4000 people per night.
