History

It's unknown when Hälleviksstrand was founded, the first written sources of it were found in 1617. Fishermen set up camps along its coast and started constructing lodgings from there. During the 1700's and the herring period many farmers from the hinterland of Orust started to move to the coast and to Hälleviksstrand to fish for herring. At the end of the 1800's the town grew with a new hot bathhouse and a borading house. Soon the mountain behind the coast was also being built on. In the beginning of the 1900's a shipyard was constructed and Hälleviksstrand was flourishing.
