Ribersborg Kallbadhus (seawater bathing facility) sits on a pier jutting out into the Öresund, the body of water between Sweden and Denmark. Here you can enjoy bathing in your birthday suit, or with swimwear on (it is a nude bathing facility) separate male and female saunas, a restaurant and café and, for the ladies only, a solarium and massage.
Facing Denmark on Ribersborg beach, on your right hand side lies Western Harbour (Västra Hamnen). The very-hard-to-miss “Turning Torso” building pokes jaggedly skywards almost 200 metres above this new seaside cityscape of apartment and office buildings, beaches and beachfront. The beachfront here is packed with restaurants, bars, cafés and nightclubs and it is bursting with life, especially in the summer months.
From Western Harbour (Västra Hamnen) you get stunning views of the 8-kilometre long Öresund Bridge, graciously arching its way over to the coastline of Denmark that you can see on a clear day. For the best views go to the Luftkastellet lookout point.
If you want to enjoy the beach life in Malmö the best time to come is in the summer months. Year-round however, Malmö and the new Western Harbour (Västra Hamnen) district are fabulous destinations for a taste of south coast Sweden.
