On the West coast of the US, in many places, they allow homes back from the beach, but on the beach, which do not impede the public from hiking along the beach from one end to the other.
If they close off the beach with fences, then the public cannot stroll the beach. I don't
know what the configuration is here, but I would not think it a good idea to fence off the beach so people can't walk it.
It's the glory of Seattle (which has many Norwegians) that the 20 mile long Lake Washington can no longer be built on, except back from the walkable beaches, where anyone can stroll. If a law had not been passed to enforce this, wealthy people would have built their homes right across the walkable beaches and stopped people from strolling by. Seattle is very beautiful and is supposed to be like Scandinavia.

There is a photo in this article about Flatholmen. (And also about Magero) If I click to enlarge, than I see really Mette-Marit before the house?

In the winter-house in Uvdal live the CP-couple. The Royal-couple have their winterhomes in Jotunheimen (the Prinsehytta), and the Kongsseteren by Oslo.

I am surprised, that somebody could take so inside-pics. There is no security?
There are two guitars on the wall... :)

A short video about the holidayhome of Flatholmen by Risor:
NRK TV - Året med kongefamilien 2008 - 25.12.2008

"-Have you visited it?
- Yes, we've been there... It was absolutely fascinating... Great-Great place.
- Yeah, that's it.
- It's very nice location on the site and on the island. It is so nice out at sea.
On sunny days they have giant playground. There is little worse when it rains!
- Is this an expression of the Crown Prince Couple's environmental awareness?
-Yes, I think so.
-I'm quite sure.
-A real commitment with them?
-Yes, they lived on Svalbard in 3 weeks. Very simple. It is very important that contrasts with the life we live. You sit very pleased to be able to live under very simple conditions.
It is very good for kids to experience it too. It's healthy...."

On this side (from the singer of the band "A-ha") there are two pictures about Dvergsoya, the Vogt Villa. On the first picture are maybe Ingrid-Alexandra and Sverre-Magnus on the beach?
