Sandhammaren is a Swedish Baltic beach. It belongs to the municipality of Ystad and is the most southeastern point in Sweden.
The sand in Sandhammaren is very special: It is extremely fine and bright and piles up on the seashore, which can look back on an eventful history.

Here, for example, lies the country's largest ship's cemetery, where the strong current and the underwater sandbanks have been the fate of many a sailor. For the same reason the first sea rescue station was built here, which was in operation from the middle of the 19th century until it moved to Kåseberga in 1945. The Sandhammaren lighthouse and a small museum still remind us of this today.
