At the initiative of the landowner, the island of Järflotta became a nature reserve in 1968. Here you will find large sandy beaches, unusual in the Stockholm archipelago. The landscape is dominated by pine forest but there is also some cultivated land.
There are suitable places for swimming all over Järflotta, but foremost at Södra Sand (South Beach) and in Sågviken. The northeast part of Järflotta is private and not accessible for swimming.
Natural harbours can be found in Sågviken, Sandviken and Skvallerhamn. There are nice bays around Järflotta that are suitable for anchoring.
Earth closet and waste shed are available at Sandskär and in Skvallerhamn.
How to get here:
There is no scheduled boat service to Järflotta so you need your own boat to visit the nature reserve.
