Bathing in Siljan - First Camp Jump to content

Discover Siljan’s fine sandy beach and Långbryggan 

Directly adjacent to the campsite, you will find an amazingly nice and incredibly shallow sandy beach. Those who cannot be bothered to wade for a few hundred metres to get the water up to their waist can instead simply bathe from one of the many bathing docks available at different depths all along the Långbryggan docks. 

Långbryggan is 628 metres long and offers a nice walk with lovely views. There are several benches to sit on along the docks, as well as many smaller bathing docks placed on each their own side of the dock. All the way at the end, the ship M/S Gustav Wasa sets out for its summer trips on Siljan. Next to the beginning of Långbryggan, you can find the restaurant Sjövillan, which has lovely outdoor catering with a view of the beach and docks. 

At the northern part of the beach is the Beach Restaurant, as well as Siljansbadet’s shop, mini golf course, volleyball net and playground. At the Siljansbadet shop, you can purchase light fast food, drinks, sweets, ice cream and snacks, etc. You can even rent a bicycle car, pedal boat or canoe, for those who want to explore the area further. At the southern end of the beach is “Helsingland”, a grassy cape suited for sunshine, bathing, and picnics. There are even some spots to tie up a boat.

The beach sits perfectly in the sun all day, and in the evening, you can often see a gorgeous sunset. For those who would like some shade, there is plenty of shading vegetation. 

You can find a dog beach in the bay, directly north of the campsite and Rättviks Kyrka.
