Lovely dunes

A classic place to visit. Beautiful and worth a stroll among the dunes. Bit of a tourist trap, but worth the drive.

At the northern most tip of Denmark two oceans meet, Skagerak and Kattegat, on a sandy beach. Great photo op and beach, but be aware of the "no bathing"-signs due to the strong currents. A good tip is to take the cheap Sandormen tractor/trolley from Grenen Parking lot. Saves you time and walking. Off season there is no bus service... More

Went here in the pouring rain and howling wind but it was still wonderful with the two seas jumping up together. Beautiful sand. Must be magnificent on a sunny day. In the car park there is a take-away café, gift shop and toilets.

Seing the wonder of Gods creation experiencing to stand between meeting waves. Didnt like the strong winds and i dont advice visiting the place in April since its ice cold here and the fine sand that will go home with you which can give you an asthma attack.

Grenen was truly beautiful - a peaceful walk (which felt ironic, with remnants of WWII bunkers along some parts of the beach) to where the seas meet. If you take your shoes off, enjoy the soft sand but be on the lookout for jellyfish which have washed up. It was an easy walk along the sand for about 15 minutes... More

Visited Grenen first time and were amazed of its beauty! Despite the hard wind there were boomin flowers and other plants. The dunes, sea and smooth sand was really worth to see and feel!

The very northernmost point of Denmark, where the North Sea meets the Baltic Sea, and you can see the join! Great walk up the beach from the car park, or you can take the tractor drawn coach. Interesting bird life and the right time of year. Not to be missed!

Walking in this beach is a very peaceful yet exciting experience! you can walk from the parking lot to the end of the beach and is like 30 minutes walk depending on your speed but if you don't want to walk there is a truck that can take you where the two seas meet. I was expecting to see very... More

We went with a two-year old. The beach was amazing. A long stretch of land simply disappering into the ocean. We adults got a great view, our two-year old just exlaimed: sand!!!! And got out the bucket. An brilliant place for walking and building a sand castle😊
