For travel within the city, or for short adventures into its outskirts, bicycles provide a convenient, affordable and fun way to get around. The area has plenty of viable cycling routes, usually detailed on tourist maps. Daily rentals run about $15, with guided bike tours often available, as well.
Ängelholm’s taxis are a comfortable way to get around the city, but you’ll pay for it. Conveniently (sort of), taxiengelholm.se offers a fare calculator, but you’ll have to know the approximate distance and time to your destination (and translate it from Swedish).
Local buses run on two routes (lines 1 and 2) through the city. A shuttle also links the city center to the beach in the summer, although it runs only a few times daily. For those planning to stay for a while, paying with a rechargeable Jojo card gets you discounted rates on public transportation, including travel to other cities in the region.
Consider taking a boat tour, or rent your own and explore the coast.
