In the scenic and hilly landscape of Helgenæs you will find both beautiful nature area and interesting, culture-historical memorials. The peninsular, which is nearly 8 km long and 4.5 km wide, offers a magnificent and quite unique nature, old village environments with narrow alleys and small, well-preserved houses as well as more relics. Villages from the stone age and the viking period are just some of the archaeological finds of the peninsular. About 20 km from the peninsular, Ebeltoft offers leisure activities, sights, good shopping possibilities and more restaurants.
The sea, surrounding Helgenæs is not especially suitable for swimming because of its depth and current, but by Dragsmur, only a few km west of Helgenæs, you will find a fine and sandy beach, which is very suitable for children. The beach of Fuglsø is situated in continuation of the beach of Dragsmur, and offers a bathing jetty.
Helgenæs is characterized by steep coastal cliffs, small hills, wide views, hedges, lakes and meadows as well as more than 100 small wetlands. Because of these wetlands, the peninsular has a rich animal life with f.x. butterflies, amphibians and small birds. The 'mountain' 'Ellemandsbjerget' is with it's 99 metres the highest point of the peninsular, and from here you can enjoy a great view of the island Samsø, and in clear weather, both Funen and Sealand are visible in the distance.
The fishing possibilities are ideal along the shores of Helgenæs. The chances for landing a fish by the lighthouse 'Sletterhage Fyr', on the southernmost point of the peninsular, where the water is deep, are extremely good. You will find many marked walking routes in the scenic and varying nature.
Worth a visit
During the summer, the lighthouse 'Sletterhage Fyr', on the southernmost point of the peninsular, is open to the public.
