Balka beach with the finest sand and shallow water
Balka beach is one of the most popular beaches on Bornholm. It’s several kilometres long and has very fine sand and shallow water. The beach is sheltered from the prevailing west wind of summer and is known for its warm, shallow water, where children can romp for hours in the gentle waves. On the other hand, you have to go a long way out if you want to swim.
