We were dreaming about beach walks, sandy toes, salty eyelashes, collecting sea shells all day long and all of that within a short drive. Jutland, the West Coast of Denmark sounded like the perfect place to enjoy all that Sand and Beach.
The experience was even better. We were welcomed by windswept white-sand beaches with powdered sugar sand, high rugged dunes covered in gently swaying golden grass, expansive tidal flatlands and the endless North Sea.
We rented a tiny cottage in Søndervig, a charming beach town which became a popular holiday destination in the 19th century. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed family vacation. Finding Hygge on the Danish coast is easy !
Lyngvig Fyr, Hvide Sande
The 38 m tall Lyngvig lighthouse was one of the last lighthouses built along the coast of Jutland and its a real beauty ! Follow the winding stairs up the lighthouse and you get rewarded with a breathtaking view of the North Sea and the Fjord.
Ringkøbing is a charming little town located on the Jutland peninsula. It’s lovely to wander the quaint old streets, most of which leads towards the water of the fjord, explore the hidden art galleries and have some freshly caught Fish and Chips for lunch at the Fiskehuset.
Voted as one of the best beaches in Denmark and it is indeed really beautiful. The beach is long and wide lots of room to build sandcastles. There are also some bunkers buried in the dunes, serving as a stark reminder of World War Two.
