Holidays in nature

Zealand’s sunshine coast

It’s so nice in Denmark! If youare into sea and beach life, where you feel the elements of nature and see the glittering light of the sun in water surfaces and on the sea floor, then perhaps the Bay of Sejerø is the place in Northwest Zealand you want to be? Sea birds, hunting for hollow rocks and amber, or the dog envestigating the beach… 

The kids playing in the shallow water, and you can relax, and have fun. Time for holiday with the family, and all you need within reach. It’s camping life! At Sanddobberne Camping, you literally live in the middle of nature, which is protected by the ”Natura 2000 Plan”, and which has been untouched for more than 50 years. Here are old oaks, fragrant pines and cows as the nearest neighbor, and for the waders the place is a paradise: a lagoon coast, they can return to. 

For events in the area, see the two links below.

Unesco Geopark Odsherred

Sanddobberne Camping is a partner in Unesco Geopark Odsherred, and we share the values on which Geoparken is based: Landscape, cultural history, art and local food. We love Odsherred, and wish to share that enthusiasm with our guests.

Visit our neighbor; Dragsholm Castle

On the other side of the road, towards woods and fields, lies Dragsholm Castle. The ghost of ”The White Lady” is supposted to haunt here(!), and the Earl of Bothwell has been buried here for many years, after he died here in captivity in 1578. The castle is a monument of the history and cultural heritage of the area. The castle’s worldfamous restaurant is Michelin-awarded and, as something new, a Bistro has been opened here. Also take a walk in the park with the beautiful gardens (espacially in may, where the Rhododendron forest is blooming), and the view over the Sejerø Bay.

Kitesurfing

Due to the location by the Bay of Sejerø there can sometimes be strong winds by the waterfront. That is why Sanddobberne are appreciated by water sports practitioners, who call the spot the Spot X. There is a large parking lot here, which makes it easy to park in front the area, we call the Football Field. Here there is plenty of room to get kite surfing gear on and off.

There are also public toilets open 24 hours a day in summerseason. You are of course welcome in the shop here, for example to buy food in the food truck, and a cup of hot cocoa or coffee. If you want an overnight stay and spend a day more on the water, you are welcome to rent one of our cabins or a caravans with a sea view.
