The South Coast of Denmark has something special to offer when it comes to recreational sailing, sailing environment and not least, sailing experiences.

South Coast of Denmark boasts Denmark’s longest coastline and plenty of experiences on, in and by the sea.

You’ll sail right into Denmark’s stories on some of the country’s most beautiful waters with just a short distance between the destination harbours. A multitude of exciting experiences await just as soon as you have berthed. Along the long coastline you’ll find many cosy and unique harbours, all of which are filled with charm and atmosphere.

When you visit the harbours of South Coast of Denmark, you can be sure that you’re never very far from a great experience. South Coast of Denmark has something for everyone, with unique experiences for all ages. Whether you’re seeking active experiences in nature, either hiking, cycling — or on the water, where you can truly find a blue adventure. Or if you’d rather go back in time in some of the interesting museums or visit the many inviting restaurants located at or near the harbours.

There are so many wonderful family-friendly attractions where you can spend time together as a family and enjoy a range of great experiences. Touring around South Coast of Denmark, you can enjoy unique nature experiences at the two impressive cliffs, and you can go to the top of the 45-metre-high forest tower, which provides a wonderful view over the whole of South Zealand.

When darkness falls, it is worth remembering to look upwards, where on the islands of Møn and Nyord you can experience the amazing starry sky in Scandinavia’s first certified Dark Sky Park. And if you visit Møn’s harbours, you’ll sail directly into the UNESCO Biosphere area.

Examples of experiences
 Aborrebjerget Dark Sky Star Spot Aborrebjerget is Møn's highest point (143 m), and with the open 360-degree view, it is one of the absolute best places to enjoy the starry sky on Møn.The path up to Aborrebjerg can be found in the Jydelejet at the first red gate, which can be seen on the right side of the road track approx. 50m from the entrance.
Try to experience the moon's decline and see how clear the Milky Way becomes after the Moon disappears below the horizon. A great experience - and a great place!  The tightly packed starry sky over Møn and Nyord is unique. That is why Møn and Nyord were named as the Nordic region's first Dark Sky Park and Community. In a Dark Sky Park, the night darkness is protected from local light pollution, so you have the best and clearest view of the starry sky.  How to behave  This star spot is located on the state's land, which is part of the core areas of the Mon UNESCO biosphere as well as the Dark Sky park.It is our shared responsibility to preserve the unique and species-rich nature that gives us unique experiences. Everyone has the right to be in nature, but we must take animals, plants and other people into account.In the areas owned by the state, special rules apply to how to behave in nature, especially at night.

It is recommended to travel on roads and paths so that habitats for rare flora and habitats for animals and birds are not destroyed. In addition, quiet travel is recommended so that animals and birds are not disturbed. Always make sure you leave nothing but your footprints in nature.
