Activities in and around Strömstad

Strömstad is a true gem on the Swedish west coast. The city, pulsating with life and charm all year round, was granted its city rights in 1676 by Karl XI and is often referred to as Sweden's westernmost outpost. Here, history meets modern coastal living among alleys and piers. The city also offers the best shopping on the west coast.

On this page, we have gathered some tips and suggestions for those who want to take a trip from Daftö Resort.

Restaurants and coffee shops in Strömstad

Strömstad is the seaside town with vibrancy and charm all year round. Try one of the cozy cafes or explore and shop in Strömstad's unique boutiques. In the guest harbor, boats and eager visitors looking for a coffee mingle. There you'll find restaurants, outdoor seating, playgrounds, and every opportunity for an ice cream break. From the square, several excursion boats depart to the islands around Strömstad. If you venture a bit north, you'll find Nordby Shopping Center, where we promise all candy lovers, both young and old, a candy paradise at one of the world's largest candy stores. Besides candy, you'll find everything you can imagine on no less than 80,000 square meters and with approximately 110 stores.
