Hunting, gathering or just watching
The varied coastlines around the Mols Bjerge National Park offer great opportunities for surface diving.
Are you hunting underwater, or would you rather gather mussels and seaweed?
Or maybe you just want to enjoy the amazing marine life below sea level - all options are open, and the many coves and inlets offer almost always calm water.
Snorkelling and underwater course
Other beaches are suited for diving and snorkelling with a very rich underwater scenery. As a special treat Mols Bjerge National Park has an underwater course where you can challenge your skills as a snorkel diver.
The underwater course is found at Fuglsø Strand.
The coast around the Mols Bjerge National Park offers plenty of unique experiences, and along many stretches the coastal waters are reasonably quiet and easy to navigate.
Campsites for kayakers
The National Park has collaborated with Syddjurs Municipality in establishing a number of camping areas along the coast meant for kayakers. There are camping areas in three categories - primitive sites, shelters, and campsites.
Look for this icon ("Overnatning for kajaksejlere") on the map.
White sails and marinas
The Mols Bjerge National Park has a very long coastline, and therefore the area has developed a coastal culture, where the main "road" was the sea until about 100 years ago.
Today, several of the harbours and docks are turned into marinas. In Ebeltoft is a large marina and a fishing harbour. Øer maritime resort town is located near the ferry harbour, and Nappedam gives a good starting point for trips to Kalø castle ruins and the nearby forests.
Coastal culture seen from the sea
The Mols Bjerge National Park supports the vintage ship Skødshoved, which offers tours to give you an impression of the National Park seen from the sea, and information about the coastal culture.
Kite-, wing- og windsurfing
It’s often windy in Denmark, and this offers opportunities for all kinds of surfing. The south-facing bays in the national park are generally well-suited to surfing.
Surfers often meet at the large shallow areas west of Ahl Hage, at Vibæk Beach and Kalø Vig. Paragliders are attracted to the slopes at Fuglsø Beach and Kobberhage.
Mols Bjerge National Park offers 188 km of coastline, and it provides excellent opportunities for fishing, both from the beach and boat.
If you fish with a rod, you are an angler and must have an angling license. (excluding children under 18 and pensioners).
The long coastline offers excellent opportunities for a bathing day or two during your holidays, and here are beaches in both the east and west, so you can find shelter and calm water.
Here are wide sandy beaches with shallow waters where children can play safely in the water.
Some beaches have a little deeper waters that inspire to long distance swimming.
