Harstena Marina

Valdemarsvik Municipality, Sweden

One day on this island, and you’ll believe Harstena must be Swedish for “quaint.” Tourists and fishermen alike bring their catch to town to have it prepared in a traditional, time-consuming curing process. With tidy fishing shacks and Baltic Sea vistas, there’s no better place to enjoy the wait.
