Just across the border from Germany on the little barrier island of Rømø is the wide open windswept expanse of Lakolk Strand. Often battered by the wind and waves of the North Sea this is both a place to feel at one with the elements, but also a great family beach during the summer months.

borders a UNESCO nature preserve, so if you’re looking for a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and bask in some of the most beautifully cathartic and restful areas in Northern Europe this is the place to go.

Part of what sets this area apart is the fact that it blends its natural beauty with a modern beach scene. You’ll find modern campsites everywhere, along with a handful of cafés and restaurants.

You won’t be short on space at Lakolk Strand, so there’s plenty of room to run around, play beach sports, and ride horses, with horse rentals offered from May to October. Kites are a common sight on Lakolk Strand, especially during the first weekend of September, when the Rømø area plays host to one of Europe’s biggest kite festivals.
