Dueodde Beach lies on the southern tip of Bornholm Island in the Baltic Sea, with regular ferry services connecting it to Ystad in Sweden. Close to Denmark’s easternmost point, the island is geographically isolated from the mainland, though a popular holiday destination due to the broad expanse of fine white sand that Dueodde Beach can offer.
It’s nickname of “Sunshine Island” gives a hint to Bornholm’s prevailing climate, with it staying warm right through until October in any average year. In fact, it’s so warm, that figs are able to ripen here. When it comes to places to lay down in the sand there’s also plenty of choice, with the beach stretching for around 30 kilometres (19 miles) in total.
Head back from the beach and you’ll pass grass covered dunes and then thick forest hiding defences from the Second World War. Shelter can be found among the dunes on the beach’s most southerly parts, where the sands can continue on for several hundred metres.
While very tempting, care should be taken when swimming, since sandbanks lead to shallow water becoming deep very quickly. The nearest car parks and toilet facilities are at Fyrvej and Skrokkegårdsvej, a short walk away and with disabled access to the beach along a boardwalk.
