Nynäshamn is a locality and the seat of Nynäshamn Municipalitymarker, Stockholm County, Swedenmarker with 13,079 inhabitants in 2005.

While interest in the area as a potentially useful port grew from the mid 19th Century, it was only with the opening of the railway to Stockholm in 1901 that Nynäshamn started to develop.

During the early 20th Century, Nynäshamn also became well known as a spa town, though most such facilities were closed down before the end of World War I. Main industries arrived through Telegrafverkets verkstäder (the factories of the Government owned telephone company ) in 1916 and an oil refinery built in 1928-29 by Axel Ax:son Johnson & Co (the latter still remains though under different ownership) .

Nynäshamn, which lies about 60 km south of Stockholmmarker, is well-known for being one of the places on the Swedish mainland from where ferries to the island Gotlandmarker depart. Several cruise ships on tours in the Baltic Seamarker also stay in the harbour, because they are too large to go into Stockholm.

Nynäshamn is served by Stockholm commuter rail and several bus routes.
