Nämdö is one of the larger islands of the Stockholm archipelago. A scheduled boat ferry serves several jetties on the island, and operates throughout the year. Fine gravel roads, suitable for walking and bike rides, join the villages and jetties on the island.

After several years of increasing dereliction, Östanvik Farm gained new tenants in 1976 and has become a modern archipelago farm specialising in ecological production. The soil is used for fodder crops and potatoes. A large barn houses sheep, lambs, cattle, calves and hens. Grazing keeps the landscape open and alive.

Guided tours are available for those interested, who can then learn more about living in the archipelago. Several nature trails and cultural trails start at Östanvik Farm, where there is also a farm shop, tourist information, guest jetty, waste management facility, camp-site and fresh water supply.

Nämdö Böte, with an observation tower and limitless views, is a popular tourist attraction, as is the ruin of the most original church in the archipelago, an octagonal round church from 1798. Sand is home to an offshoot of the Stavsnäs Archipelago Museum, while Solvik has the Nämdö Kök & Bar restaurant.
