Attractions on Fanø
The huge sandy beach and the nature is the big attraction on Fanø. Here is space for being active and for peace and contemplation.
On the west side of Fanø holiday homes, campsites and hotels are scattered across the beautiful dune landscape. The proximity to nature, the fresh air and the tranquility make a holiday on Fanø a very special experience.
Fanø is the only island on Jutland's west coast with a ferry connection. The sailing trip from Esbjerg only takes 12 minutes and the 2 ferries Menja and Fenja departs every 20 minutes. Already on the ferry you get the first feeling that there is peace and quiet here.
The vast majority of Fanø is pure nature, all of which are part of the Wadden Sea National Park. So even at the most crowded period in the summer, it is easy to find places where you can move completely undisturbed. Experience the rich bird and animal life with seals, deer and rabbits.
The 2 historic maritime villages of Nordby and Sønderho exude atmosphere and nostalgia. This is also where you will find most of the island's shops, artisans, restaurants and cafes.
If you are into sports and action, there is a beach area where you surf and ride beach cruisers.
