    (Car) minutes away from the city centre a true oasis: clear water, clean beach, (free) parking - so you can finish well the afternoon after a busy sightseeing day: just jump into the water and then siesta... Class! Oh yes: Food there at the Lidl on main street super cheap... ;-)

    Excellent place for water lovers and for fun activities. The view all along, more than 1 km long shore line, is a treat and an excellent place to spend a whole day. This place is just next to the Cope...  more »

    Very nice and quite a big beach. Had good time during Skt Hans celebration on 23rd june 2017. Beach is super clean and water is crystal clear. Remember to carry a polarized sun glass to see through water. Its simply awesome. You will feel it, mark my words.

    Lovely sandy beach against the backdrop of the mighty Øresund bridge. There are lifeguards on duty and every few hundred meters there are bathrooms and kiosks. There is even a mobile library if you need some reading material or entertainment for your kids.

    Really well kept public beach. Clean water + inspiring landscape. A place to calm your mind.

    This place is definitely a must visit if you have long layover at Copenhagen. The beach is very well maintained and if you are lucky you can have an awesome evening with your friends.

    A more than decent sandy beach with surprisingly clean water, as for a city beach. There's plenty of space to park your bike, a couple of ice cream and drink stalls and well taken care public bathrooms.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
