Haukland Beach has been ranked by some publications as the most beautiful beach in Norway. Walk around this white sand beach staring out into water so colorful you will thank you have been transported to the tropics and a trail along the coast between Haukland (the most beautiful) and Uttakliev (the most romantic beach in Norway).

Haukland Beach is a gorgeous white-sand beach surrounded by mountains outside Leknes in the Lofoten area of Norway. The beach is only a few yards from the parking lot, making public access very easy. After spending a few minutes walking along it's shores, it will be hard to argue that Haukland is not deserving of the title "most beautiful beach in Norway." The word tranquil is also likely to enter your mind on your visit. Haukland can also be connected to the nearby Uttakliev beach (which is beautiful is its own right) by a few kilometer trail that follows the coastline around the mountain. Haukland is also very close to Vik beach, another small beautiful beach worth spending some time walking along.

The beach itself is only a few yards from the parking lot so bring gear for your activity.
