What is there to do in Baskemölla, one might ask? But one would be asking entirely the wrong question.

What is there to do in Baskemölla, one might ask? Well, perhaps you might wander north from Simrishamn to catch an exhibition in one of the little galleries or art cooperatives that can still be found out this way, or even a bit further north at Vik.

But really, we would throw the question back at the questioner: what does one even mean when one says one wants “something to do”? Does that category include, perhaps, sitting with your back to a knobbly, sun-warmed chunk of volcanic rock, and looking out for New Hansa sailing ships passing by on the Baltic? Or sitting with your back to a tree, a cold drink in one hand and a good book in the other, sharing the shade with the mildly feral cows that still roam the area? Does it include just wandering around, admiring the way that lightly wooden farmland and orchards can suddenly give way to beaches of stone or sand?

If “something to do” does not include these categories for you, well—maybe Baskemölla should get crossed off your personal wishlist. But really, you don’t know what you’re missing.
