Hi. As far as i see it is a sandy beach. And taking into account the reflectance of sand, in sunlight this place looks like a tropical beach! But in latitude of almost 70 N... incredible... I really wonder: what temperature of water on the coast of Sommarøy in the middle of summer?
PS wonderful photo!
Thanks :) The average sea temperature would be a bit above 10 degrees C. But in shallow areas it can get bit warmer, so it is possible to take a quick swim ;)
Quick swim :) well, if only very quick :) Oh, i can compare it to Crimean weather at the beginning of May - when i rather climbed up to the hills and mountains than quickly swimmed in the Black sea. And i never supposed that so nice sandy beaches are located deep in the northern Norway. (sorry for my english) Cheers
Hehe, it's usual to combine mountain trips with a quick swim afterwards here as well. Very refreshing ;)
There are actually quite a few nice beaches in norther Norway. But some are quite remote. Just take a virtual tour in Google Earth ;) Do you have any pictures of the beaches by the Black Sea?
(Your English are not worse than mine)
I already looked over Norway tonight in GE :) especially Lofoten islands. Truly it is the dream of hiker!
Yes i have some pics of Crimean beaches and so on.. but... i have no scanner :) moreover, my old (non-digital) pics were taken in pragmatic style with fishy personages like me and my family :) I think it is not a good idea to publish a lot of such pics here
Haha, I like to see your fishy family :)
Yes, the Lofoten area is really beautiful. I've uploaded some more beach pictures and tagged them with the beach-tag. Some of them are even from Lofoten.
beautiful pic!! love it!
regards from Mexico!
fast so schön wie bei mir zuhause
beautiful view, nice colors, the mix with blue and green... it's amazing !
wow super (tukey)müthiş
Why pay an expensive trip to the green lagoons of Pukhet (Thaïland) when you have the same in Norway (altough the heat of the water might not be exactly the same...)
If I hadn't seen the location on the map I would swear that it is in Mediterranean...!
Very nice beach. LIKE Best regards from Slovakia. Dagmar
