Balka beach

Balka beach is the most child-friendly beach on Bornholm and is considered one of the best beaches in Denmark. The kilometre-long beach has fine white sand and the most beautiful turquoise blue water.
The beach is sheltered from the west wind, so the water is calm and only gives a few soft waves. Balka is known for its shallow water, where you have to go far down to swim, which makes swimming and playing safer for children. In high season, there are lifeguards on the beach to look after the bathing guests. Balka beach offers many opportunities for entertainment for the whole family throughout the summer. You can rent kayaks or windsurfing equipment.

There is a kiosk and good parking facilities at the beach, as well as mini-golf and toilets.

Disabled-friendly Balka beach

Balka beach is accessible for the disabled. A good access road and wooden ramp leads from the car park on Frederiksvej.
