Tips for Dronningmølle holiday home stays
Dronningmølle is well known for its long, broad sandy beach stretching the entire length of the bay. The beach is child-friendly and the water quite shallow, so children can play safely, and in the summer, the beach is manned with lifeguards.
If you prefer a more private spot on the beach, the dunes along it offer little sheltered hollows. A ramp leads from the parking lot to the beach allowing wheelchair and pram access.
