Baltic island, Fårö, has no banks, post offices or police and a small population which swells to more than triple the size in the summer season as beach loving Sweds come down, bringing with them an atmosphere of unique but rugged resort life. Strange rock formations line the shore, the locals have a language of their own and there are only two ferries which connect Fårö to the main land but the beaches are famously beautiful, especially Sudersand, described as Sweden’s best beach.

It was a favourite of local celebrity Ingmar Bergman, who made several films on the island.
