Beach holiday

At The Top of Denmark you are always near a sandy beach. In fact, our coastline is one long beach - only interrupted by a few villages and towns. In general the beaches are child-friendly, especially on the east coast where the sea is calmer and the water shallow. And in Frederikshavn there is a palm beach! The west coast is a bit 'wilder', perfect for surfing and beach games.

The beach dunes are generally covered with lyme grass, and here you find spots for sunbathing in privacy and protected from the wind. At The Top of Denmark you can always find a suitable beach for swimming, water games, surfing and children’s play.
