The Beach Guide

Løkken strand

Stretching for 10 km Løkken Strand is home to some of the best waves and softest sand in the whole of North Jutland. Given the pristine nature of this section of the North Sea coast it also has some of the cleanest water in Denmark.

During the summer months swimming is popular at Løkken beach and there are lifeguards on duty. In addition, as a regular recipient of the Blue Flag, you can be confident there are plenty of facilities to make this a great family beach.

Adding to the distinctive quality of Løkken Strand are hundreds of white-washed beach huts which line the dunes. So numerous are these huts that this area of the beach is sometimes referred to as “the White Town”; a name that seems all the more justified when the sun (or moon) lights them up up.

Heading northwards along the beach you will find a number of Second World War concrete bunkers on the beach. Originally situated in the dunes erosion has gradually moved them towards the sea. Whilst not the most attractive addition to the beach they can act as a windbreak or shelter on stormier days.

For families, history buffs and seafood lovers alike, Løkken Strand is truly a treat.
