This beach, Sulbæk Strand, north of Sæby is very popular, especially among families with children. Here the children can enjoy playing in the water, build sandcastles and find fascinating seashells or maybe a piece of amber. From the centre of Sæby you just have to cross the foot bridge over Sæby stream, and then you will be at Sulbæk beach and a beach promenade that continues for kilometres to the north. Knowing that, it’s easy to combine a day at the beach with an evening walk in the charming centre of Sæby – and maybe enjoy a good dinner in one of the boat harbour’s restaurants.
Do not forget to visit Frederikshavn and one of Denmark’s longest pedestrian streets. Along the street, and in its side streets, you will find many different kinds of shops, a diversity of restaurants and cosy cafés. The kids will love a day at either the huge indoor play area Fun House, the indoor “Caribbean” water park (The Reef) or the exotic Palm Beach, all in Frederikshavn.
Golf enthusiasts have a wonderful golf course, Sæby Golf Club, a few kilometres away. Other golf courses in the region are Frederikshavn Golf Club, Sindal Golf Club, Hjørring Golf Club, Hirtshals Golf Club and Hvide Klit Golf Club.
Voer Å is one of the region’s largest streams, twisting its way through the landscape before reaching Kattegat at Voerså. In Voer Å you can catch trout, perch and European flounder (fishing license can be bought at the tourist office and the local grocer).
For families there is a lot to do and things to see: Farm Fun in Ålbæk with a lot of exciting activities and where you can meet and pet animals such as kangaroos, goats, llamas and pot-bellied pigs to mention a few. Watch birds of prey at Ørnereservatet (EagleWorld) in Tversted, or experience sea wildlife at Nordsøen Oceanarium in Hirtshals with (among other things) northern Europe’s largest aquarium. The kids will love a day at either Fun House, a huge indoor play area, the indoor “Caribbean” water park (The Reef) or the exotic Palm Beach, all in Frederikshavn.
På Toppen af Danmark findes også 5 spændende, mærkede mountainbikeruter i Sæbygaard Skov, Skagen Klitplantage, Tornby Klitplantage, Bagterp Plantage og Katsig Bakker. Udover de mærkede mountainbikeruter kan Nordjylland byde på en række muligheder for mountainbike-entusiaster i skove og på stier. Generelt er det tilladt at cykle på stier og veje i de danske skove, men glem ikke at vise hensyn til naturen og andre naturelskere, når du kører i skoven.
