Basking in the sun
Relax for a couple of days at the beach on one of the many beach bars, where you can rent beach chairs and parasols between Easter and October 15. The beach bars rent out sun loungers and parasols and you can have a drink on their beachside terraces with your feet in the sand. During your stay in our B&B Aquavit you can book a sun lounger at one of the beaches, like Lichttorenstrand.
Walking along the beach is wonderful and not only during the summer. In spring, autumn and winter, you can also enjoy beautiful beach walks.
