INSTA-STOCKHOLM: SECRET BEACH AT TANTOLUNDEN

We love exploring the cities we call home through your eyes; in this Insta-round up, we explore how Stockholm residents cool down on hot Summer days.

When you think of cities with gorgeous beaches, Stockholm probably isn’t the first one that springs to mind. Yet on warm days, locals flock to the seaside right in their city. Formed of 14 islands, the Swedish capital is surrounded by crystal clear waterways that make it a dreamy destination in the summer.

Tantolunden Park, located near the coolest shops and bars on Södermalm, is the perfect place to sunbathe and swim when the temperature rises. The large green space meets a sandy beach at the water’s edge and features some smooth wooden pontoons to lounge on if you aren’t a fan of sand.

In the first of our Instagramable Stockholm series we uncover the summery vibes of Tantolunden Park: the perfect spot to picnic and swim on warm days without leaving the city centre.

Here are our favourite pics of swimming at Tantolunden in Stockholm. Make sure you tag us @generatorhostels and #GenLove to be included in our next article!
