The northern tip of Denmark begins here at an imaginary line from Bunken at the gentle Ålbæk Bugt on the east coast, through Lodskovvad and Hvide Klit to the magnificent North Sea at the west coast. Staying in a holiday home in this lovely area you are near exciting places to visit, great golf courses and beautiful beaches. The gentle waves and shallow water along Kattegat at the east coast make the soft, sandy beaches ideal for children. Many beaches in this area have a Blue Flag certificate and along the coast there are lots of places suitable for angler fishing. On the west coast, facing the North Sea, the waves are a bit bigger and the water gets deep closer to the beaches. The current is also stronger than on the east coast, making it more fun to swim and surf here – but should be done with caution and respect for the forces of nature. Most of the beaches are car free, but at Kandestederne and Skiveren it’s allowed to enter the beach by car, a convenience for physically impaired and families with small children.
Bunken is a small, peaceful summer house area in beautiful surroundings. Here you can stay in a holiday home close to sandy dunes, pine tree clusters and the beach. And, “just around the corner” there is a wonderful nature golf course named Hvide Klit. A few kilometres from Bunken, Lodskovvad and Hvideklit you find the fascinating, desert-like coastal dune Råbjerg Mile. This migrating dune is about 1 square kilometre big and moves 15 metres annually – during the last 110 years it has migrated 1500 metres to the east. The place is also home to small carnivorous sundew plants. From a holiday home in Bunken, Lodskovvad or Hvideklit you can make nice day trips to Nordsøen Oceanarium in Hirtshals with northern Europe’s largest aquarium, the eagle reservation Ørnereservatet in Tversted or visit the picturesque town Skagen to the north with Grenen, where the two seas Skagerrak and Kattegat meet – just to mention a few examples of interesting things to do at the top of Denmark.
