Owner description: “You have to have been there to understand,” sings the local troubadour, Terje Nilsen, describing Mjelle in a song. In the summer, many excursions end at Mjelle, both weekends and weekdays. You don’t have to be a child to collect shells or build sand castles, or to enjoy a good ball game. Bring firewood and cooking equipment if you want to barbecue.

“Nice beach, good bouldering”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Very nice, big beach area 20 km north of Bodø. Beautiful sand beaches, nice grass areas and boulders scattered around perfect for bouldering.
Good ice climbing in wintertime.

“First choice beach”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

You will have to walk about. Half an hour to get there, but it's well wort the effort! The scenery and view is priceless! On a clear day you can see Lofoten from Mjelle. It's clean and huge, not very warm sea, but. Nice place to spend a relaxing day or night. Recommended for watching the midnight sun especcially.

Went to Mjelle beach in late May to watch the midnight sun. Easy to get to, beautiful beach, and FREE! Great place for a quick get away from Bodø.
