West Jutland: Sea and beaches

A blustery beauty

The sea is rougher here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches excellent water sports areas. If you’re looking for more child-friendly and family areas for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.

Fresh fish at the source

With the North Sea dominating West Jutland landscape and lifestyle, it’s hardly surprising that it’s one the best places in the country to gorge on fresh fish. Tonnes of fish are caught daily along the coast and are available to buy at outlets just a few short hours later.

Fanø

West Jutland islands

Fanø

Located just off the coast from Esbjerg, Fanø is an old maritime island with a perfect landscape for beach activities such as kite flying and sailing. The area is also an excellent place to hunt for Danish amber that washed up on the beaches. You can also see a variety of wildlife on the island, such as wild rabbits and seal colonies. The architecture on the island is also extremely special and inspired by the Frisian style.
