Marstrandsfjorden, Pater Noster and Åstol are some points to rest your eyes on. If you want to get an even more breathtaking view, you can take a detour to one of the viewpoints. The terrain is rocky and hilly in places. If you're lucky, you might come across the wild mouflon sheep grazing freely here. A small grocery store with coffee and lunch service is available on the island.
