About 5 kilometres north of Løkken, at Nr. Lyngby, the struggle between land and sea is obvious. The water erosion turns land into sea, leaving a beautiful, but steep, coastline. The most dramatic evidence lies just north of Nr. Lyngby, where the lighthouse at Rubjerg Knude is expected to be engulfed by the sea before the year 2020. This area is a favourite for paragliders and perfect for an active holiday with hiking through dunes, forests and plantations. Just south of Nr. Lyngby there is a fantastic, child-friendly sandy beach. Our holiday homes in Nr. Lyngby are within walking distance of the beach.
Nr. Lyngby is an old fishing village, constantly struggling with the voracious sea. Today there is no professional fishing activity in the village, but a reminiscence of old days are the fisherman cottages along the road. The village church was moved inland more than a century ago, and now lies protected by trees about 1 kilometre from the coast. The old graveyard is slowly on its way into the North Sea, and north of the graveyard you can see remnants of houses and roads taken by the sea. From Nr. Lyngby you can hike through the dramatic landscape, along 'Nordsøstien' (North Sea Path) to Rubjerg Knude and the famous lighthouse there.
