This beach is the multiple time winner of the award for Norway's best beach. The Norwegian best beach judges must be into scimitar shapes in silver, glinting in the sunlight that never quite dies beneath the horizon, backed by the empty green top-hat-esque backdrops of the Lofoten Islands. The water is cold. Naturally – it's above the Arctic Circle. But it's not as cold as you think it's going to be – thanks to the Gulf Stream it's only going to turn you a shade of pale purple, not the blue of bright red really freezing water will turn you.
