Saksild – much more than the best beach on the east coast

Saksild is among the best beaches in Denmark. It waters are shallow, there is no current and no rocks, making it extremely child friendly. We understand that the sandy beach attracts you, but the Saksild area offers much more than just that.

Denmark’s oldest crazy gold course right by the summer house

At the centre of the area's summer houses is a popular activity for children and childish grownups. The local crazy golf course is full of history and buzzing. It is Denmark's oldest. Taking on each other on the old course is a funny and cosy game for the whole family to enjoy.

At the café, the popular local ice-cream or a handful of sweets make for a nice reward (or perhaps a consolation prize) after the family showdown. During the summer, concerts and other events are sometimes arranged so that you can be sure of a lively hustle and bustle.

Stay in a holiday home and miss nothing

Along the beach, a wide areas is covered in coastal holiday homes – a few steps from the white sand, yet in a quiet area sheltered from the beach and characterised by birdsong and the smell of barbecue. Shopping and dining options are only a short walk away and the area is particularly well-suited for nature walks.

There are hundreds of holiday homes for rent at Saksild Beach and the nearby beaches of Rude Beach and Dyngby Beach. We recommend that you check them out.
