Active island vibe
If you wish to experience the peace and quiet of island life, the newly renovated harbour at Strynø is definitely worth a visit. Even larger ships can call at the harbour, since the depth reaches 2.5-3 metres. The harbour’s size was doubled in 2009, and visiting boats usually find a berth by the wharf or at the jetties.
Nice harbour facilities
The harbour offers nice new shower facilities, a small sailor’s cabin, a playground and barbecue sites. There is a small grocery store and some nice eateries inland.
Showers and toilets can be accessed for free at the new service building, which also offers a sink and some hotplates. There is also a machine for payment of the harbour fee, and if you would like to know in what direction and how strongly the wind blows, you can read the wind gauge here.
Waste containers are located in the container yard by the service building and in the bicycle shed at the head of the pier.
The new slipway can be used free of charge.
Pre-order your breakfast rolls
In the summer months, the harbour master will be present at Strynø Harbour each morning at 8 am, and each evening at 8 pm and can be contacted by phone on +45 22 84 84 43 (Jens Vaupel). Pre-order your breakfast rolls to be delivered the following morning by contacting him.
Keep up to date on island life
On the outside of the service building, you will find notices with useful information. The old waiting lounge at the pier head has been renovated and now offers shelter to anyone trying to escape the fickle Danish summer weather.
On the walls of the waiting room hang posters that tell you about the history of the island and its harbour.
Remember to visit the Smakkecenter (Smack Centre) where you can learn about the natural and cultural history of the South Fyn Archipelago. The focal point of the exhibit is about the navigation between the numerous islands. It is a fun and exciting exhibition for young and old alike.
Donation for the new harbour
The old Strynø Harbour was dilapidated and cramped, so zealous locals set about fundraising for a new one. They succeeded in raising a considerable sum thanks in particular to a large donation from the A. P. Møller Fond; and the new harbour was inaugurated in the summer of 2009.
