On Östra Hästholmen, an island off the coast by Torhamn, the first fishermen and farmers settled about 300 years ago. In 1912 two brothers named Mårtensson founded a boat yard called "Bröderna Mårtenssons båtbyggeri". For three generations the Mårtensson family built boats of a traditional type from Blekinge here. The boat yard is well worth a visit. Everything is left in the same way, as it was when the brothers worked there.

The island is, together with the neighbouring island Ytterön, one of the biggest nature reserves of Blekinge. You can reach Östra Hästholmen by ferry from Yttre Park, daily every quarter of an hour. The boat m/f Wittus also calls at the island
