With the sea at your doorstep
Marstrand is 40 minutes by car from Göteborg, right where the Skagerrak meets the Kattegatt.
Marstrand is possibly the most fascinating island in the county of Bohuslän. It quickly developed into a base for fishermen when the herring fishery brought a period of great prosperity. Later, in the days of national romanticism, Oscar II transformed the island into the summer paradise it still is today.
Even now the island has an almost magical attraction for Swedish sailors and has the most popular guest harbour in Sweden. Each year thousands of boats moor here and a large number of people discover a wonderful small town of cobbled streets and charming timber houses.
One good way of discovering this idyllic archipelago is to visit Villa Maritime. You can attend conferences here, stay in one of our apartment suites or visit our restaurant. We also organize weddings and other festive events.
A warm welcome to our fine island all year round!
