Fantastic and beautiful Bohus - Malmon has something to offer everyone.The nature is amazing with the beautiful and windswept west side facing the open sea, and the eastern part's exotic coves. There is a lot of cultural history on the island. Sweden's first granite stone working began here in 1844, which since then has set its clear traces on the island. If you want to discover ancient remains, sit down next to water lily ponds, visit the cholera cemetery or the forge, swim or go fishing, or simply visit one of the numerous rock crevices to just be alone for a while, all this and much more is on the island. When the clouds are growing over the mainland, the sun shines on Malmon. The trail has got blue/white markings on poles, trees, plates and mounds of stones.Show more
