Bymarken and Sandvika
Bymarken is a meadow and woodland area beside the mooring and small beach of Sandvika. A 45 kilometer car drive from Stavanger Norway, but only a 1.5 km boat ride from south Stavanger! In the 1930's it was set up by Stavanger Turistforeningen as the place for the people of Stavanger to relax and go rambling - complete with cafe and dance floor - but it has been little used the last 65 years

is located on the north-west slope of Lifjell, which is the hill with TV
antenna and fantastic view down over Stavanger. There is a landing jetty
for boats, small sandy beach, meadow with rocks to scramble on and a large
wooded area on the slope up towards Lifjell.
This place is crying out to be used, but needs a regular "public" boat service.
There is a turistforeningen trail (marked with a big red T) leading up to Lifjell, and from there you can walk down the track to Li, or hike on to Dalen, Dalsnuten or beyond.

Drive south from Stavanger to Sandnes, then north again towards Hommersak then Li, right to the end of the road and locked gate where the path begins - but there is nowhere to park.
nearly all parking places along the road are clearly marked as private.
At the moment you need your own boat to get here.
