Bokenäset has a rich cultural heritage. Throughout the area burial grounds are found from the Stone Age and onwards. A big mound dated back to the Iron Age is found at Granhogen. One of very few priories in this region was established at Dragsmark. Today only the ruins remain but in July the medieval market brings back a touch of the Middle Ages. Food prepared according to old recipes is served, choirs are chanting medieval songs and why not try some of the activities at hand?
If you are into markets you can buy locally produced handicrafts at Bokenäs Bygdegård where exhibition and sale take place from July 5 to August 6.
Another point of interest is Bokenäset old church, which was erected during the 12th century. It is open to visitors and still shows some archaic features i.e. the structure lacks windows facing north. Traditionally this was where the evil forces lured and to avoid their presence in a sacred room simply a wall was built.
Our sheltered archipelago provides excellent waters for kayaking. Bird enthusiasts enjoy a varied birdlife in the shallow waters around the small island Bassholmen, a peaceful haven with grazing horses and sheep.
