Borstahusen is a fishing village just north of Landskrona in southernmost Sweden. It was founded in 1776 by the brothers Rasmus Andersson Borste and Jöns Andersson Borste, after whom the area is named for.

Around the original village, a recreational area has sprung up with camping, golf courses and beaches. In the harbour, an old pump house has been converted into a museum, gallery and restaurant, designed by the architect Per Dockson.

The local soccer team is "Borstahusens Bollklubb" (BBK).

North of Borstahusen, adjacent to "Erikstorps Kungsgård" (a former Royal Estate) is Borstahusens vacation village. It was built in 1960 to give local workers a place to spend the summers in a peaceful seaside setting. Today the establishment has 82 condos and, together with the nearby golf club, is a very popular place for tourists.
