Lysekil developed in the 18C thanks to herring fishing, and then became a famous spa town - a few buildings still remain from this time. Today, fishing boats that supply the town's canning factories moor at the south port. The tourist office (Södra Hamngatan 6) has information on kayaking trips, cruises and seal-watching excursions. Havets Hus (at one end of Södra Hamngatan) houses a museum highlighting the area's coastal flora and fauna and that of the waters of the Gullmarsfjord.
