Hukodden – Bygdøy beach

Hukodden, or ‘Huk’ to the locals, is a beach on the Bygdøy peninsula. The south-facing stretch of sand gets plenty of sun in summer, and it’s surrounded by grassy parklands making it a popular spot for a swim or a stroll. A ferry from Oslo’s harbour used to pull up at the old jetty, but now it’s just used by kids as a diving platform. There’s a restaurant by the beach, and kiosks are open in summer for snacks.

Hukodden is the end of the line for the number 30 Bygdøy bus route. You can also take the ferry from Oslo to Dronningen pier near peninsula’s museum precinct (check out the Viking Ship Museum and Folk Museum articles) and walk around to the beach.

A word to the wise – if you take a wander around the coastline, be aware that there’s a nudie bathing area around the spit to the north-west of Huk. It’s out of view and fairly tricky to stumble across, unless you want to, of course…
