Langsand beach on Sandhornøya

This trip goes to the beautiful Langsand Beach on Sandhornøya in Gildeskål municipality. This is a huge beach that is located just across the road from the parking lot, so you don't have to drag your stuff very far here. Even if there are much people here on a sunny summer day, you will have no problem finding a nice spot for yourself. The drive to Langsand is a nice road trip by itself, as you are surrounded by gorgeous Northern Norwegian nature with the sea, forests, and high mountains along the road to and on Sandhornøya. There are also several other small beaches you can check out on the way to Langsand and elsewhere on the island
