Its claims to be the “Riviera of the South Coast” might be a slight exaggeration, but Mossbystrand is a very fine sandy beach on the very south of Skåne near the old fishing village of Abbekås, with a nature reserve behind it. Its closeness to Trelleborg and Skurup means it can get a lot of locals on afternoon visits, but on some days you’ll almost have it to itself. Mossbystrand Kiosk sells ice cream and sand toys, but also smoked fish and filling meals served with chips or mashed potato.
