Beach life

Vita Sand - White Sands. Just taste those words….they deliver what they promise! Our own beach. Yes, of course everyone else is welcome. It’s not ours like that, just that our hearts beat a little faster for “our” beach. When people first started to camp here  around a century ago they put their tents up right on the beach. That’s how it was.


Vita Sand, which is sometimes called Sörvik by local residents, is shallow and child friendly. Ideal bucket, spade, and sandcastle territory! Right next to the beach are low rocks for anyone who doesn’t want to get sand between their toes. There’s a volleyball net, a restaurant and cafe right in the middle of the sand dunes and crab fishing is compulsory.

Frequently asked questions


Do I need a camping card?

Yes. We’re members of SCR Swedish Camping and at all affiliated campsites you either need a Camping-ID or a Camping Key Europe (CKE). Neither of them is an actual card anymore on the other hand, that was then. Now you can find them both in the My Camping Key app, link below. A Camping-ID is free, and in 2020 Camping Key Europe costs 199 SEK for 12 months and offers discounts and benefits as well as providing third party insurance. Read more on you download My Camping Key and register your Camping-ID directly you will be ready to check in. If you then want to upgrade to Camping Key Europe you can do it in the app. Link to App store (iPhone). Link to Google Play (Android).

Do I need to book in advance?

Yes, usually. During the summer weeks and popular weekends you should always reserve a pitch in advance.

You can’t book specific pitches, but please let us know your requirements when you book. Pre-booked pitches are reserved until 18:00 on arrival day unless we have agreed otherwise.

When can we check in?

You can check in from 15:00. If you’re going to arrive later than 18:00 and haven’t paid in advance please contact us on +46340219590. If you have paid in advance please just make sure you arrive before reception closes.

When do we have to check out?

The hostel, no later than 13:00. All other pitches no later than 15:00.

How and when do we pay?

We take no booking deposit and have no cancellation insurance - only a cost of 250 SEK in cancellation cost. We’re convinced that you really want to come to our idyll and if despite that something happens and you have to cancel, we hope quite simply that you will come here another time instead. That’s about as complicated as it gets.


Payment usually takes place when you arrive but if you want to pay in advance that’s of course fine. Email us at and we’ll convert your booking form into an invoice. On it there’ll be an OCR number that should be used as reference. Then everything is sorted before you come. Otherwise you can simply make a card payment on arrival.

There is one exception – we always send an invoice for our midsummer package. This should be paid two weeks before arrival.


A deposit of 10% should be paid within 10 days after booking. The remaining amount should be with us no later than two weeks before arrival.

If something happens and you are forced to cancel we will return your payment and bid you a warm welcome some other time.

Are pets welcome?

Of course pets are welcome. However they must be left outside the Hostel and Facilities Block for the sake of our guests with allergies. Please keep dogs on leads in the camping area and take them for walks outside the campsite. Can dogs be on the beach? Yes, our four-legged friends can have a dip with you but they must be on leads.

Is there an age limit?

If you want to stay here without parents or guardians then one person in the group has to be 18. It’s also the minimum age to get a Camping-ID.

On site

När måste vi checka ut?

Vandrarhemmet, senast kl 13.00. Alla andra senast kl 15.00

Is there a TV room?

Yep. There’s a TV room in the Hostel and the Shark Club hut. Can be opened on request.

Is there parking for cars?

Yes. Each pitch has parking for one car per campervan/tent. For guests in the hostel there’s one per room.

Visitors and potential extra cars can be parked in the campsite car park. Parking fees can be paid in the app. If there are enough spaces, campsite guests can also get a parking permit from reception.

What are the campsite rules?

You’ll find our complete list of rules here. The most important are:

Quiet time

Quiet time applies between 23:30 and 07:00. Quiet must be adhered to between these hours on the whole campsite.

The entrance and exit are closed between 23:00 and 07:00. No motor vehicles can enter the campsite during this time.

Speed limit

For everyone’s comfort please use your car as little as possible inside the campsite. The fastest you are permitted to drive is 20 km/h. Keep an eye open! Many children play around the campsite.


The campsite manager has the right to reject vehicles and persons who don’t follow the campsite rules or behave inconsiderately on the campsite.

What power cables can I use?

The majority of our electric points have EU connectors (CEE) and you will need an EU standard three pin adapter plug and socket on your mains lead. If you don’t have one they can be purchased in reception. For safety reasons no adapters are available to borrow. The wrong electric equipment can cause fires and injuries.

A correct cable has a blue plug and is marked CEE. The plastic cable contains three thinner cables with a conductor size of 2.5 mm². The cable should not be longer than 25 metres. An adapter cable can be connected to the cable, usually around 0.5 m but max. 2 metres long.

In accordance with the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board’s requirements we and our industry organisation have decided that only 3 core 2.5mm² electric cables and CEE equipment may be used at Åsa Camping & Havsbad and other campsites in Sweden.

Is there a defibrillator?

Yes. There’s a defibrillator available 24/7 in the facilities block facing reception and one by the SUP hire place on the beach.

What do we do with our rubbish?

Rubbish and other waste can be left by the entrance next to reception. Help us be more environmentally friendly by sorting your waste. If you have large items of refuse let us know in reception.

Where do we empty our toilet/latrine?

In designated disposal sinks by the campervan emptying point and in our C-area by the restaurant road. These are marked on the map of the area.

Can we light a barbecue on the campsite?

Camping without barbecuing….? Of course you can barbecue. We do ask you to do it using the proper equipment however. Lighting fires directly on the ground is not allowed. Disposable barbecues should not be placed directly on the ground either.

Empty the coals in the designated container by the bin area next to the entrance.


Can I bring pets?

Unfortunately not. We have just three rooms and have chosen to keep them free from pets for the sake of our guests with allergies.

We will happily recommend other places that do accept pets – ask in reception.

Do I have to clean before I leave?

Yes. Guests clean rooms themselves before leaving according to the cleaning instructions on the inside of the door to the room.

If you don’t have time you can pay for cleaning as an extra when you book. This needs to be booked and paid for no later than three days before you leave. We will then clean the room, but you must wash the kitchen equipment for the respective room, empty the bins and clean the fridge.

Is there bedlinen and towels?

Yes and no. Most people bring their own bedlinen and towels. But you can hire a linen pack with sheet, quilt cover, pillowcase and towel for 120 SEK per set.

Is there a highchair in the room?

Highchairs and travel cots for younger children can be borrowed at no cost. Tell us when booking or book yourself if online booking, so they will be waiting for you in your room when you arrive.


Is there wifi?

Absolutely. We have our own network for guests, "Åsa Camping Surf". And it’s simple to access: open your browser and follow the instructions.

Can we hire bikes?

Yes. Thanks to our collaboration with Åsa Marin & Fritid you can hire bikes in Reception.

Please ask us about bike rides - for those wanting a real challenge, for the whole family, in the forest or along the coast. Long ones and short ones.

One of Sweden’s loveliest cycle routes goes basically right through the campsite – the Kattegatleden. The whole route stretches from Gothenburg to Helsingborg, but you don’t have to cycle it all ;)

Is there a washing machine?

Oh yes indeed! There’s a washing machine and dryer in the laundry room. Book a slot and pick up the key in reception.

Can I borrow a book?

Absolutely. There’s a little “library” in the TV room with books that you can borrow, change and even take home if you haven’t managed to finish it. If you’ve finished a book you no longer want feel free to leave it for someone else :)

Is there a food shop?

We don’t have our own shop but just 200 metres from reception there’s an ICA supermarket. It’s open every day from 8:00-21:00

There’ a small selection of sweets, crisps, drinks and ice creams in reception.

Where can I swap freezer blocks?

In our Facilities Block there’s a fridge and freezer for guests use, with a separate freezer containing ready frozen freezer blocks. Open 8:00-22:00.

How can I reach you outside opening hours?

If you need to contact us urgently after we have closed please ring +46340219596.

For booking and other non-urgent matters, we refer you to our regular opening hours. Our online booking is always open :)

Where do I exchange gas cylinders?

You can exchange them at Lindar'n. If you want a refill instead you can do that in Fjärås and Gasoldirekt.
