Best Beaches in Denmark

Posted on 1 November 2011

It is hard to imagine long stretches of pristine beaches in Denmark for the country is more popularly linked to skiing and other winter activities. However, Denmark do have beaches. In fact, the entire coastline of Denmark is one long beautiful beach sans the palm and coconut trees. Expect though that there are parts of the coastline that are better than the rest. There are some Blue Flag beaches found along the length of 7,300 kilometre of sandy-white coastline in Denmark. The best time to beach-hop with the Danes is during the summer months. In case you are travelling all over Denmark in an RV, it is best to hook-up in one of the many motorhome parks in and around Copenhagen as one of them is bound to be near the beach.
