Arild is a small locality in Höganäs Municipality, Skåne County, located in the bay of Skälderviken in northwestern Scania, approximately 30 km north of Helsingborg in Sweden. It has a population of 537 (2005).

Like Mölle, which is also located close to Kullaberg hill, on the Kullen peninsula, Arild has been a well known resort since the beginning of the 20th century. Amongst the first to discover Arild as a holiday resort were Europe's fashionable elite. Arild was (and is) very popular with painters and other artists.

The "Arild Legend" tells the story of a woman named Inger, a widow who singlehandedly bore the responsibility of her two young sons, Arild and Tore. Inger decided to marry one of her many suitors, a particularly persistent one, master David, whose intentions, unfortunately, turned out to be less than noble. Master David made sure that Inger's sons were aboard a ship that was set afire at sea in Skälderviken, thus securing an inheritance for himself and his own sons. Legend has it that Arild's body washed ashore at what is today known as Arild and that Tore's body perhaps drifted across Skälderviken to the place which is now called Torekov (on the Bjärre peninsula).
