Rude Beach

This bathing beach at the east coast of Jutland has good facilities for beachgoers. With a wide beach and calm water, Rude is among the best beach area in East Jutland. Rude Beach is in immediate continuation of the popular Saksild Beach and might be your preferred choice if you want a bit more space around you.

Lovely bathing beach with good facilities

Saksild Beach is known as the best beach on the Danish east coast. From there, Rude Beach is only one kilometre away. Rude Beach has the same natural strengths as Saksild. The beach is wide, the sand is fine, and the water is shallow and calm. Rude does not have the same facilities as Saksild (lifeguard tower, activities, and eateries) but offers more space around you as it is less frequently visited.

Rude Beach has a fine bathing jetty and toilets for general use. The beach has the white bathing flag with three stars meaning that the bathing water is of the highest possible quality.

There are more than 150 free parking spaces around the beach. You can park in the holiday home area behind the beach at the parking lot between Violvej and Granvej.

As you leave your vehicle at the parking lot and head towards the beach, you will pass Eva Keramik where the local artisan Eva Pedersen has her gallery and store. You are welcome inside where you can admire her beautiful sculptures.
