About Haukland beach
Haukland beach look like the tropical beaches of Seychelles is famous and one of the most beautiful beaches of the Lofoten Islands. There is a white sand, clear blue water, mountains around. This beach is a favorite place for tourists because it is a very good place to start a hike to Mannen, Holandsmelen and several other, more exotic routes. In summer you can rent kayaks, there is a café and a small hotel nearby.
You will always be delighted if you are not looking for solitude. On the isolated beaches of the Lofoten Islands, you can read on my website or in my guidebook for travelers and photographers.
But most travelers prefer to stay on the Haukland beach. Every evening here tents are put up tens or maybe hundreds of tourists. But the place is enough for everyone. I cannot understand why everywhere they say that on the beach there is no camping. Here is one of the best places for wild camping in the Lofoten Islands. I think it’s such a Norwegian play of words or a joke.
There are a WC and water. But the water isn’t drinkable. Take water from the falls (hike to Mannen mountain) or bring water with you.
Do not plant a campfire on the grass. It’s not very beautiful, but many tourists do it. There are a lot of us. And if each of us will make a campfire, then very soon Haukland beach will turn into ashes. Use barbecue grills.
Haukland beach has located 10 km from Leknes. Before Leknes, look for a turn on Haukland and Uttakleiv and ride along the road. Right in front of the tunnel to Uttakleiv, you will see a parking lot, a WC and a camping site. Turn left to look for a place for your car. In the evening in the summer, there may be a parking problem. Try to arrive a little earlier and take a more convenient place for the car.
