Ljugarn is well known for its long and sandy beach. Ljugarn was, however, already in the 17th century an important town and port, and it is in the historic site for Strandridarna that the hostel is located. Here you live in the converted, charming old stone customs house. The large, lovely and beachfront plot also houses the Strandridar Museum and in the old hen house there is a fossil museum. Large child-friendly areas also attract to play and games.
The sea and the fantastic and child-friendly beach is about 300 meters away, and invites to both morning, dinner and evening dip.
Ljugarn is a charming village with old houses and fishing village. During the summer there are plenty of cozy restaurants down in the village which is about 500 m walk from the hostel. There is also a grocery store and a café that is open every day of the week. From Ljugarn you can both walk and cycle and you can easily reach Gotland’s many excursion destinations.
