The beautiful and distinctive nature of Tunø is something quite special, which is why 90 per cent of the island has been protected since 1965. If you want to experience Danish nature at its best, Tunø is a good place to go.
Earlier, the island was covered with oak woods but today it consists of a varied nature with everything from meadow flowers, wilderness with wild honeysuckle, amongst others, to various types of trees such as fig and mulberry trees. They thrive in the special climate.
In the steep cliffs to the south and northwest, clear moraine deposits are visible after ice-age glaciers which helped shape the island's hills.
