The town of Båstad is the seat of the Båstad Municipality in Skåne County, Sweden. The town is bordered by the seashore and the dense vegetation of the Hallandian ridge that stretches behind it.
Båstad enjoys a mild climate with short, warm summers and mild winters.
It was given city-status for the first time in the fifteenth century and then later in 1513, when it was still a part of Denmark. In 1658, it came under the control of Sweden. It became a centre of commerce, handicraft and hostelry. In 1858, it got official rights as a Swedish merchant town, or köping.
With a population of about 4,800 inhabitants, the major income is derived from the herring fishery. Båstad is one of Sweden’s most modern and most fashionable seaside resorts.
