The beautiful holiday island Endelave offers 25 kilometers of coastline with fine sandy beaches and clean bathing water. The beaches are scattered around the entire island, and you should treat yourself to a dip in the blue waves when visiting the island on a day trip or vacation.
Beautiful beaches on the island of wild rabbits
If you enjoy a dip in the blue waves, Endelave is a great place to swim. The water is shallow all around the island, making Endelave's beaches very child-friendly. Additionally, there is so much coastline on this sparsely populated island that you won't find crowds of people. In fact, in some places, you can almost have the beach all to yourself.
At the same time, facilities around the beaches are limited. There are no lifeguard towers and ice cream kiosks – it's just you and the magnificent nature.
There are four areas on Endelave that are particularly suitable for bathing:
West of Endelave's harbour pier, you'll find an approximately 1 km long beach with excellent bathing water and a seabed primarily consisting of sand, but also with gravel and stones.
The beach itself is 5-10 meters wide and is located close to several shopping options.
It is here, by the harbour, that the bathing facility is situated. Newly opened in 2021, the facility features an 80 m2 large land area with benches and seating, as well as an L-shaped gangway extending into the water with several platforms and 4 ladders.
There is parking available in the area in front of Endelave Harbour.
