Halmstad is a town on Sweden’s west coast that’s perfect for a chilled-out holiday. With a picturesque harbour, a lovely sandy beach and a charming old town, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. Take a walk or cycle along the promenade, stop for a coffee in one of the town’s many cafes or enjoy a sundowner in one of the harbour-side bars. There’s also plenty of culture to be found in Halmstad, with a well-preserved medieval centre and a lively arts scene. When you’re not exploring the town, why not take a trip to the nearby Lake Vättern or the city of Gothenburg?
