Närsholmen  is a beautiful peninsula with seldom savannah-like landscapes kept open by grazing animals. Here are plenty of rare animals and plants to view, as well as a beautiful lighthouse.

Närsholmen is a place for nature experiences. Take a walk along the beach or across the Gotland beach stretches. The peninsula has a rich bird life and a variety of flowers and plants that get the chance to claim on the well-cultivated field. Together with the wind-pine pines and lakes, Närsholmen is unique.
