“Perfect place to rest on a sunny day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Well the summer in july 2014 was amazing. During more than 10 days a heat wave hit Norway including Stavanger.
At daytime temperatures did hit 30 C and did just go below 20 at night.
WOW - the Sola Beach is just a perfect place to be. We went there 3 times in a week.

The beach long and fairly wide and is likely one of the finest sand beach you will find in Norway.

The water temperature is about 22 C - nice to cool down. The beach is child friendly since is does not get deep quickly.

Go there by car. There are fine fine free parking spaces. We did arrive before noon and it was not a problem finding a place to park the car.

One day we came for a swim before dusk. There were still many people enjoying the warm evening.

Well if a heat wave hits Stavanger again - go there :-)

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

This beach is so breathtaking, even when the temperatures drop! There is no bus stop near the beach but it is pretty close to the airport. The water was so clear although it is freezing!

“Pretty beach, but ice cold”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

This is a beautiful beach, but beware, it is ice cold. Even in the height of summer, the water temperature never really gets much warmer than about 14 degrees celcius, and the area is exposed to strong, cold winds directly in from the north sea. I visited in mid July and you could not even go on the beach without wearing a warm, wind resistant coat. Going in the water is out of the question unless you enjoy "ice bathing".

Beautiful long beach with fine white sant situated at the end of the runway.

“beautiful but cold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

Breathtaking beach, white fine sand, clear water, very clean. Mostly strong wind and quite cold so few people walking or running. Kite surfing paradise. there are no toilets, closest to the toilet in the hotel next to the beach. Unfortunately, there is no bus to the beach, the nearest stop is near the airport and you have to walk about 15 minutes.
