Amager Strandvej, Copenhagen, Denmark
33 66 33 19
Amager has long been a popular bathing spot for Copenhageners ever since the original Helgoland Baths were built back in the 1930s; it wasn't until 2005, however, that the beach park was completely redesigned and transformed into a three mile-long coastline of new sand, complete with a laguna and artificial island. The area is so extensive that despite numerous summer activities including several beach bars and children's theatre, the area never seems crowded and it's always possible to get a spot to yourself. It can feel a bit windswept at times, though the views of the Sweden-Denmark bridge
(Øresundsbroen) are very impressive. An ideal spot to get away from the city, whether you're into sailing, swimming or just plain sunbathing, and easily accessible by public transport (including the Metro).
