The beach on Fanoe

The beach is the biggest playground on Fanoe. Here is room for all kind of activities.

Of course swimming is of the things that is really attractive at the beach. The best place for swimming is the part from Fanø Bad to Rindby Strand.

This part of the beach is very wide and it grows wider and wider each year. New dunes are bulding up on the beach. That is the way Fanoe has developed over many hundreds of years. West for the new dunes you find a great beach for swimming.

There are plenty of other activities on the beach: volley ball, flying kites, play football and many other things.

South of Rindby is the area called the buggy beach. It is good for surfing - and for the kite surfers it is a great area. You can also go beach crusing with blokarts, kite-buggies and landboards.

Further sourh the beach gets more and more narrow. However, at low tide the beach is very wide. This is a good place to look for amber.

Bathing tips

It is nice to swim in the North Sea, as the beaches on Fanoe are completely without stones and pebbles and generally very child friendly.

But the sea is also a powerful natural force which demands that we treat it with caution and respect.

At Visit Fanø you can get a little booklet "The sea can take anyone by surprise" that gives tips on bathing.
