This sandy beach along Lake Vättern at Motala is 5 km long (i.e. over 3 English miles), which makes it the longest inland lake beach in Sweden. We just made a short stop here to have a look (because I wanted to see it); on our way to other destinations. This was around 11 a.m. on a Saturday morning, and although sunny, not exactly warm. My guess is that if the weather kept sunny, there were probably more people in the afternoon.
There are also many summer cottages in the neighbourhood. My camera eye was drawn to this little red one because of its “polkagris”-striped fence. (polkagris = traditional Swedish red/white striped peppermint rock candy)
