Balka Beach

Balka beach is known for its kilometre-long, white, fine sandy beach and shallow, warm water. The beach is sheltered from the western winds of the summer, and you can walk quite far out in the water to find a place where you cannot reach the bottom. Balka beach is located in the southern part of Bornholm, close to Snogebæk town.


Melsted Beach

Melsted beach is located on Bornholms’s east coast, close to Gudhjem. The beach is child-friendly, and at one end of the beach, a small stream runs down to the sea. Here children can play for hours building dams. At Melsted beach, there is also a bathing jetty to avoid the pebbles on the seabed.


Sandvig Beach

Sandvig beach can be found at the bottom of Hammerknuden on the northern part of Bornholm. The beach is wide and has lots of room for fun and play. In addition, you get a beautiful view of the rock formations breaking the beachy landscape. Sandvig beach has good parking facilities, a kiosk and restrooms.


Boderne Beach

Boderne beach has room for lots of fun for the whole family. Find your little oasis in the dunes and let the fun unfold. You can jump from the big rocks in the water or build amazing sandcastles by the water.


Antoinette Beach

Close to the city of Rønne is Antoinette beach. A lovely child-friendly beach with plenty of space and many opportunities to find a good spot.
