The beaches here are pretty safe for kids, mind the pepples though, good idea to wear shoes.
The scenery is beautiful and so green, plenty of shady calm spots to rest with a good book and a beer.
Or drop a line in the water and catch a fish or two, for your dinner.
There are plenty of caravan parks or holiday houses for rental in the area all along the coast.
Take a stroll on the beach in the summer evening. With the Danish daylight saving, there is still daylight at 9pm and the water is calm.
