Nestled on the west coast of Denmark, 500 m from the town of the same name, sits Nymindegab Strand, one of the most popular holiday getaways in the entire country. That’s due in no small part to the fact that the area is home to some of the most stretches of North Sea coast.
The beach is located at the southernmost point of Ringkøbing Fjord. Despite its name, the “fjord” isn’t home to the kind of steep massive rock formations you might imagine, but rather a lovely shallow lagoon.
The shoreline of Nymindegab Strand is intermixed with pristine, wind blown white sand and grassy dune areas. It is a popular family beach, with a positive, peaceful, friendly atmosphere. The water here is generally on the cool side, affording families a refreshing place to go swimming during the long hot summer months. There are plenty of cafés and kiosks nearby where families can stop for local snack favourites.
With the roaring North Sea to one side the beach is backed by large lyme grass-covered dunes. Dotted among the dunes are a number of well-preserved WWII-era concrete bunkers.
