    All About Huk Beach, Norway

    A beautiful beach in Norway, Huk Beach is a popular urban beach very close to Oslo city center offering incredible views of the Oslofjord, surrounding lush greenery and nearby majestic mountains.

    Backed by parkland with plenty of trees providing shady spots, Huk Beach is divided into two sections separated by a small inlet. The eastern section is a regular public beach, while the western section is a naturist (nudist) beach.

    There’s a snack bar at Huk Beach, which is only open in summer, a beach volleyball court and a diving platform, as well as sculptures by world-famous artists Henry Moore and Anne Sofie Døhlen in the park set just behind the beach.

    You’ll also find another popular urban beach a little further north on the peninsula called Paradisbukta Beach.
