Fanø is located in the middle of the Wadden Sea, just off Esbjerg. Fanø's unique nature is characterised by the Wadden Sea to the east, fantastic bathing beaches to the west and dune plantations in the centre of the island.
At the Wadden Sea on the east side of Fanø, you can see millions of migratory birds. Because of its unique location, the whole Wadden Sea region is an important "resting place" for waterfowl and wading birds in particular. On the east side of the island, you can also see a large number of seals that live in this area. The seals are easy to spot at low tide. Fanø's west coast consists of one long, beautiful sand beach of approx. 12 km. that is great for swimming. Here, you will find Fanø Bad, which is now a historic holiday resort with holiday home, hotel and holiday apartment accommodation for rent. In this area, you'll also find the first golf course that was built in Denmark, where Fanø Golf Club is now located. In Fanø's Dune Plantation in the middle of the island, the beautiful scenery alternates between open meadows and small lakes. The plantation has several marked hiking trails. On Fanø, there are also several excellent cycle paths, a good excuse to explore the island by bike.
In the summer season, Fanø has plenty of activities and
events to offer, including the Fanø summer concerts, which
place every Tuesday in July and August at Nordby Church. In
they hold the annual Dragon Festival
which attracts many kite enthusiasts, and in mid-September they hold the Fanø Knitting Festival! In Sønderho, on the south side of Fanø, you'll find the Fanø Art Museum, which houses a permanent exhibition of paintings by local painters from the artist colony on Fanø.

We begin at the sourt-west part of the country with the wide marsh land and the Wadden sea which is part of UNESCO's World Heritage List. A good way to experience the area is by walking the Wadden Sea or trying an oister or seal safari. Rømø is southernmost island of the Wadden Sea and it has some of the widest sandy beaches in Europe. North of Rømø, located across the sea from Denmark's oldest town Ribe, you will find Mandø, which is another of the natural gems of Denmark. And last, but not least, there is the old holiday island Fanø with its charming towns Nordby and Sønderho along with the magnificent beaches at Fanø Bad and Rindby Strand.

On some of the beaches you can find remnants from the past in the abandoned bunkers from World War 2. In 2017, the Tirpitz Museum designed by the renowned designer Bjarke Ingels opened in Blåvand. The museum is a portal to the secret treasures of the west coast. And unlike the colossal and invasive cement bunkers the Tirpitz is open and beautifully integrated in the dunes.On the islands Rømø, Mandø and Fanø you can experience the powerful Wadden Sea. Here nature has the power. It is for instance only possible to go to Mandø at low tide. The Wadden Sea has a unique and rich wild life with especially migrating birds feeding on their way south.
