Ystad (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈyːsta]) is a town, and the seat of Ystad Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden, with 18,350 inhabitants in 2010. The settlement dates back to the 11th century and the town has become a busy ferryport, local administrative centre and tourist attraction.

The well-lit port can be entered both day and night. Sail from the approaching buoy of the trade port’s leading light (line 36°) to the first red buoy, from where a leading light at 19° will guide you to the marina past the western wave breakers of the trade port. The entry is equipped with light beacons. During day, you may also use the gray and green silos and the onion-shaped tower of the Church of St. Mary as a means of orientation. Be careful, the ferry boats have the right of way.


Ystad is a port of entry/exit for Sweden. For details see Entrance: Sweden.
