Experience the greatest butterfly spots on Öland, home to over 650 different beautiful butterfly species, get the chance to discover rare bats or enjoy the incredible birdlife. Nature is alternately lush deciduous forest, pastures, and beach meadows.
The history of this nature reserve began in the 19th century when a large port project was initiated. A 2 km long pier was completed in 1858, but it was unfortunately incorrectly designed, and quickly it became difficult for the larger ships to get to the harbor. Fifteen years after the opening, Beijershamn was taken out of use. With protection from the storms from the sea, a fantastic animal and plant kingdom started to flourish.
Three beautiful trails:
* Lilla Beijershamnsrundan, 500 m
* Stora Beijerhamnsrundan, 2.5 km
* Pirpromenaden, 5 km - walk along the old harbor pier on the narrow headland!

Take a moment and read, it will engage and enthrall you, and a whole new world can be opened up for you and give you an understanding of the area you are visiting.
