Tisvildeleje Beach is one of many beaches within striking distance of Copenhagen. Around 30 km north of the city the sandy shores here sit alongside the popular holiday village of Tisvilde. The area has long been a favorite of fishermen, and an active fishing scene remains a key part of the beach’s culture today. Enjoy restaurants serving up the catch of the day or sit on the beach or in nearby cafés and watch the little boats drift by.

The beach here has a wonderful wild feel with a long stretch of golden sand backed by windswept dunes. Beyond is the verdant expanse of the “Tisvilde Fence” - Denmark’s fifth largest forest and a popular spot with cyclists and walkers.

Whilst the more westwards you head the wilder the beach becomes there are still plenty of facilities closer to Tisvilde. In fact the beach has been a frequent recipient of the Blue Flag award ensuring it is clean nand family-friendly.

A further sign of the beach’s long standing resort credentials are the colourful old beach huts dotted around the grassy dunes next to the village. These remain as popular as ever with owners who spend sunny weekends relaxing by their huts.
