Lakolk beach

Lakolk beach is located on the southernmost Vadehavsø, Rømø. It is the most visited beach, which extends to Sønderstrand and has a length of 12 km. Here you have the opportunity to find the ideal beach place. The beach is a paradise for kite lovers who gather every September for the annual kite festival. You can park your car directly on the beach, because the sand on the beach is very hard, so you should not get stuck.

Fanø beach

Fanø beach is located between Fanø Bad and Rindby beach and is the best bathing beach on the island. With white sand and almost rock-free coastline, it is a popular vacation destination for many guests. The beach is 15 km long and about 1 km wide and ideal for sunbathing, kite flying, soccer, volleyball, pole tennis and much more. Driving on the beach is allowed in most areas.

Blåvand beach

Not far from the cottages in Blåvand you will find Blåvand beach with fine sand, shells and rounded stones. The southern part, Hvidbjerg Strand, is ideal for families with children. If you are planning a trip by car, you can park in one of the free parking lots near the beach.

Vejers beach

Vejers Strand is a special highlight for people with disabilities. Here you can drive your car on the southern part of the beach on a distance of about 3-5 km. There is also plenty of parking, which is used by many locals on warm summer days and weekends.

Grærup beach

Grærup beach does not offer access or parking near the beach. Therefore, the coast here is mainly visited by holidaymakers in Grærup Strand and locals. The beach is all natural and you can reach it only by unpaved paths that run between the dunes.

Despite the convenience offered by car beaches, it is important to consider the environmental factor. Driving on the beach can disturb the natural habitats of birds and other wildlife that frequent the shorelines. It’s also important to follow local regulations and make sure you leave the beach clean and pristine.
