Falsterbo is a small city in Scania, belonging to Vellinge Municipality in Skåne County, in southernmost Sweden. Falsterbo forms a conurbation with Skanör, with a joint population of 7,087 (as of 2000), that during the 20th century increasingly has become an affluent suburb for people working in MalmöLund or beyond, but also a site popular among people who have retired from positions abroad or in the capital.

Skanör and Falsterbo are often denoted as cities due to historical reasons. The town of Falsterbo can definitely be said to have existed in the early 13th century when the city, together with its close neighbour Skanör hosted the annual Scania Market (Skånemarknaden).
