Copenhagen: Beach

The Paris of the North

Copenhagen Beach

The perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, Copenhagen’s Danish Riviera has many beaches to be proud of running both north and south of the capital city. Located just 20 minutes north of Copenhagen, visitors can take the S-train line to Klampenborg. With views of Sweden across the sea, this stretch of fine sand is lively on hot summer days. Alternatively, try the charming, century-old sea baths next door called Bellevue Beach Baths. Hellerup, also north boasts about 100 meters of clear blue water and pure white sand.

Newly inaugurated Amager Strandpark, in the south has it all with beaches and lagoons within a 15 minute bike ride from the city. A man-made island it juts out into the sea towards Sweden from the island of Amager just to the south of Copenhagen. Located along Amager Strandvej on the island of Amager, it can be reached by metro to Lergravsparken station and a 15 minute walk along Øresundsvej or by bus #12 from the Town Hall Square or the airport. 

Alternatively, visitors can go to Helgoland Baths, founded in 1913; there are no swimsuits.
