You can get to the tiny hamlet of Klädesholmen, with its postcard perfect cottages in red and white, via a bridge from Tjörn, and while many people come for the day to eat at one of the region’s best seafood restaurants, Salt & Sill, this floating restaurant is also one of the best places to stay in Klädesholmen, and it’s well worth an overnight stay.
This island was built on herring - if you can believe it there were once 30 factories processing herring here, but today there are just a handful left. If you’re interested in the island’s symbiotic relationship with this popular fish then the Herring Museum is the place for you.
- Salt & Sill is a classic minimalist Scandinavian hotel - but floating. The decor in the 23 rooms may be paired back, but it’s very beautiful, perfectly complementing the ocean views. Swim off the deck or explore this archipelago of islands.
