For more active beach-lovers, there are plentiful activities on offer at various beaches around Denmark, such as fishing, kayaking, kitesurfing and windsurfing. At Klitmøller Bay in North Jutland, sometimes known as Cold Hawaii, you can experience some of the best windsurfing conditions in Europe. Swimming in the sea is very popular in Denmark and with over 200 Blue Flag beaches around the coast, Denmark offers you some of the cleanest natural swimming areas in Europe.
Head to the beach all year round
Across most of Denmark, beaches are open to the public. In Denmark, beaches are incredible on stormy, rainy or frosty days, when the bracing wind and salty sea air can really revitalise you. Take a walk along a Danish beach outside of the summer season and you never know what you’ll find – washed up amber, driftwood or fossils. There's nothing like experiencing Denmark’s wild side on one of Denmark's beaches in winter!
