Thanks to its concrete jetty, Mellerstön is a popular stop for sailing boats and motor boats that are passing through the region. There is a concrete jetty with 15 berths in the bay, which provides good shelter from all winds, apart from north-westerly winds. The depth in the bay is approx. 5 metres, while it is about 2.5 metres around the jetty. The sea bottom consists of mud.
There is a cabin for rent, and bookings can be made via Piteå Tourist Centre, tel. +46 (0)911-93390.
Take a snowmobile ride during spring/winter and stop at Mellerstön or Vargön to enjoy the spring sun.
There are snowmobile trails from Svartnäsudden (Bredänget) and out to Mellerstön, approx. 6 km, and from there to Vargön it is approx. 2 km. Furthermore, there are also two additional trails on each island. The ambition is to also mark them up during the winter.
