Amager beach

Address: Amager Strandvej, Copenhagen, 2300, Denmark

This is Copenhagen's best beach.

Although there are more secluded beaches on the city outskirts, this beach just 5km from the city centre, is sheltered in a lagoon and has a wonderful atmosphere in summer. It's a great place to enjoy the feel of sand between your toes, to take in the seaside café culture and to people watch. It's also a good, safe place for kids to run and splash around.
