Palmestranden (Palm Beach)

As a rule we tend to associate palm trees with tropical locations such as California or the Caribbean. Even so, Palmestranden in Denmark does a great job of bringing a touch of that tropical feel to Northern Europe with 100 palm trees lining the soft white sands. These palm trees flourish from May to September, the rest of the year they live in a greenhouse.

Palmestranden is a very family-friendly beach and the Blue Flag status reflects this. You can enjoy beach sports, picnics, and all manner of family-friendly activities here, and get ice cream from one of the nearby stands. With protective breakwaters and a summer lifeguard service swimming here is generally pretty safe too.

During the summer Palm beach patrons can take part in regular yoga sessions. If you’re looking for a truly restful beach experience on your trip to visit, it’s hard to beat the palm trees, light breeze, and yogis of Palmestranden.

The beach is located close to Frederikshavn city centre, with the marina, Rønnerhavnen and Nordre Skanse both in walking distance. It is also just a short walk to the ferry terminal taking passengers to Sweden and Norway.
