Amager Strandpark is a beach with two sides, literally. Sitting on a 2 km long artificial island there is a lagoon on one side that serves as a kids paddling pool. On the other side of the beach, there are large sand dunes and a promenade along which you’ll find people playing ball and picnicking. From the beach there are views of a nearby windmill park as well as the Øresundsbroen Bridge, which connects Denmark and Sweden.
There is definitely an active feel to Amager beach with all manner of surfers, kayakers, and water sports enthusiasts taking to the sea. Various beach sports are played here as well, and skaters commonly frequent the promenade.
Given its location not far from the city centre it is unsurprising that Amager Beach is one of the busiest beaches in the Copenhagen area. In addition to the summer influx of beachgoers the romantic views and convenience also make Amager Beach a favorite for open air weddings.
