Grenaa Beach

Quelle: Norddjurs Municipality

The 5 km long sandy Grenaa Beach is very attractive place for tourism, with a hinterland of summer cottages, including many rentals. The last 1.5 km are seldom visited, ending at the cape of Havknude. Here the beach turns into a stony shoreline, that continues 30 km down the east coast of the peninsula of Djursland, facing the Kattegat between Denmark and Sweden.
