About Kronoskogen

Kronoskogen has salt water swimming, white sandy beaches, pine woodlands and footpaths in all directions – everything just a stone’s throw from trains, busses and all of the comforts that Ängelholm has to offer. Along the coast you can get a glimpse of regional gems such as Kullen, Bjärehalvön and Hallands Väderö. The sandy woodland, Ängelholms strandskog, is a nature reserve with special rules and restrictions. Check them out on this site.
