Sele and Borestrand Beach

This wonderful beach is about 3 kilometres long, with dunes along the full length. The large mouth of the Figgio river with footbridge emerges at the northern end and divides the smaller Sele beach to the north from Bore beach. A great place to walk and enjoy sea breezes.
This is the Jaeren coast south of Stavanger Norway.

surfing in April - bring your wetsuit The beach is popular with surfers, wind-surfers, runners and horse-riders all through the year. There is also private salmon fishing in the Figgjo river in the autumn. It can be very brisk here in a westerly wind.

On hot summer days, children do bathe but the water always has waves, is quite cold and in places there can be an undertow. There are safer, warmer bathing beaches for children around Stavanger.

Please remember not to harm the beautiful sand dunes but rather walk and play on the beach.
The walk is easily extended for many kilometres both to the north and south by continuing along the rocky coastline to the next beaches in each direction.
