With only 50 miles separating the two coasts of South Jutland, you are never far from the open sea. To the west, the North Sea; to the East, the calmer waters of the Little Belt strait and Kattegat. On the east coast, you'll find steep slopes and white, sandy beaches. On the west coast is the Wadden Sea and the dikes that have held back the sea for centuries. And Rømø, with its long, wide beach, is a mecca for windsurfing enthusiasts.
