Off the Baltic Coast, the two large islands of Öland and Gotland should not be missed. Accessible from Kalmar over a 4 mile bridge, Öland Island has a very steep coast opposite the straits, many pleasant beaches, sunshine and places of interest (historical relics, rocky pinnacles and 400 windmills). In the heart of the Baltic Sea lies the exotic island of Gotland which has steep limestone cliffs and beaches, as well as lush vegetation ? a result of the sunny weather, particularly in the spring and autumn.
The islands of Öland and Gotland provide numerous opportunities for their visitors to discover their marine flora and fauna, which notably include seals and aquatic birds.© Hans L Bonnevier / age fotostock
