Skoboraden is the name of a barrier of islands, one of which is Jungfruskär, that stretches around 10 kilometres off the Nämdö coast. Previously, the fishing here was good, and it was probably this that enticed people to come here to live at the start of the 20th century.

Today, many pleasure boats find their way here, attracted by several excellent natural anchorages, one of which is Grönskärsfladen, between Jungfruskär, Grönskär and Kuggmaren, with an information hut and drinking water. This is one of the larger natural anchorages in the archipelago that is visited each summer by thousands of boats.

A marked nature trail starts at the northern bay of Jungfruskär and passes around the whole island. This three-kilometre trail offers a beautiful ramble, passing beach meadows and rocky viewpoints, with questions set out at a number of places where you can test your knowledge of the natural world.
