At Apelviken the summer has always been somewhat longer. It's true! When July has become August, When every 'must do" is back and you know that autumn is coming the strive to keep the summer just a little bit longer always appear. Do not despair. Just then - everything you want from summer is still there in Apelviken.
The bay is open throughout September!
As you know we never close, but this year we really extend the summer. And we do it together with our best friends in the bay! Almost everything is open at least all weekends throughout September.
Now we roll up our sleeves and will keep the pool as hot as possible in the autumn winds - aiming at 22-23° but with a bit of luck 25°! No outdoor seating will be put away just because the sun sets around nine. We won't close the bars just because the schools starts and shut down the Surf Centers when the surfing peaks? Not a chance.
And it's not just the bars and the pool, the grocery store and the Surf centers that are open. Strandtåget, or the Beach Train as it would translate to, has been a tradition in Varberg since no one remembers. Nowadays in a more sustainable electric version.
Strandtåget will run all september weekends as well. Between Apelviken and Societetsparken along the beautiful beach walk with a marvelous view over rocks, beaches and Kattegatt.
August and September is lazy days and pulse at the same time. It's the air, the summer city and all the stunning people who linger in the bay when many pack up and step back in to everyday again.
When Gotland returns to Stockholm and Bohuslän put shutters in front of the windows to meet autumn, we pour rosé and keep going. Sooner or later there will be dark and chilly November rain and then we can use those days of memories and images - when we took the bike to Vikhyddan for the last swim of the year albeit it was a little to cold, and the overwhelming felling afterwards. And how we, even if we had to put a sweater on close to midnight, stayed at the beach into the night
Late summer in Apelviken is like finding a new song by your favorite artist, the last strawberrys of the season. When the sun sets behind Kattegatt it's magic. Johns place and Surf Saloon is open! Kusthotellet, Solviken, Nisses and Brittas Strandveranda as well.
In many ways August and September is the best time of the year. Treat yourself with a longer summer, keep the feeling - in time November will come anyway.
