Visit the most child-friendly beaches of the east coast

The Odder Coast boasts many excellent beaches where the youngest family members will love to go nuts at the water’s edge. This is one long stretch of coastline with all of five Blue Flag beaches. One of these is Saksild Beach which is amongst the best and most child-friendly beaches in Denmark.

What is a Blue Flag beach?

The Blue Flag is an international eco-labelling scheme. Blue Flag beaches are characterised by high-quality bathing water and, generally, great efforts are made in the areas of environment, facilities and services.

You are not permitted to drive on the beach and dogs must be on a leash during the summer season from 1 April to 30 September. The rest of the year, you can let your dog loose on the beach as long as it does not cause other people to feel insecure.

Refreshing activities by the blue sea

The beautiful coastline is used for much more than sunbathing. The beach also looks lovely when viewed from a sea kayak or a canoe. You could also cast your line and catch dinner.

For the children: Let the youngest family members try their hand at crab fishing at the ports of Norsminde and Tunø. It is a popular activity amongst children. Tie bait to a stick and see if the crabs at the crab jetty will bite.

Enjoy the atmosphere of the lovely ports

Between the beaches, there are busy marinas. Here, you can sink your teeth into a delicious fishcake at the dock or maybe an ice-cream while enjoying the sight of the beautiful sailboats.
