This eastern stretch of coastline is lined with flat beach meadows, sandy beaches, shallow bays and rocky beaches.

Fantastiskt vacker led. Vacker vandring vid alla årstider, framför allt extra fint att vandra på västsidan Hönö efter en storm när vinden lagt sig och se de stora mäktiga vågorna slår mot klipporna. Övriga kommunen har även väldigt fina promenadståk som är väl värt att besöka. På Björkö finns det mycket fina uppmärkta stigar som är väl värt att besöka, Björkös alla stigar är uppmärkta med 5 olika färger och olik svårighetsgrad, stigarna är i väldigt vartierande teräng såsom ängar, skog och vackra utsiktsplatser, ni hittar mer info på
