The beach is located at the northern tip of Bornholm, at the foot of the Hammerknuden plateau. It is surrounded by rocks and green hills and is the most popular beach in the north of the island. Sandvig beach is always lively in the summer. Children play on the beach or jump into the water from the low cliffs. Adults play ball or seek shelter on the outer cliffs.
No other bathing bay on Bornholm has such Mediterranean charm as this bay with its reddish glistening granite rocks. The bottom of the bay is largely sandy with a few rocks and drops away relatively quickly. The bathing jetty makes it possible to enter the open water even when the shore is covered with algae.
From here it is close to everywhere. The town of Sandvig with hotels, pensions, restaurants, shops and bus connections is just around the corner, and there is also a car park, a campsite and a kiosk nearby.
If you get tired of lying and lazing on the beach, a walk on the Hammerknuden plateau is highly recommended and offers unforgettable views. In good weather, you can see Sweden some 40 km away from the hill. You will also reach the characteristic white lighthouse, which is the northernmost point on Bornholm.
Wheelchair accessible paths lead from the car park to the beach and along the whole beach. A very nice swimming pier was built in 2015. On the beach, TRYG lifeguards are on duty throughout the summer season.
