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.

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.

Lovely moments sea kayaking along the Odder Coast

Two beautiful fjords and the calm waters make Odder ideal for excursions at sea - canoeing or kayaking. The coast calls you here in the blue Eastern Jutland.

Fishing along the Odder Coast

All of 71 kilometres of coastline provide optimal conditions for coastal fishing on the Odder Coast. Therefore, we can only encourage you to bait the hook and hurry out to the best spots where the chances of a catch are the best.

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.
