It is possible to swim in the broad 'Thisted Bredning' by Sennels. 14 km towards north, by the way of two dams, you will find a really good Liim Fiord bathing beach with coarse sand and stones by Amtoft. A bathing jetty is also available on the beach. If you wish to experience the wide and white sandy beach of the North Sea, the beach of Agger Tange is situated only 23 km from Sennels. The beach is about 100 metres wide and consists of both sand and stones. The water is clear and the bottom is sandy with rocks. The beach has the Blue Flag. You will find good bathing and sunbathing opportunities as the many groynes shelter the beach. However, the water is deep with occasional waves and currents.

'Vejlerne' is Northern Europe's larges bird sanctuary with wild birds, and you can follow the bird life from the marked paths or the bird gazeboes of the wetlands. By the hillside towards the inlet by Hovsør, a few km north of Sennels, you can enjoy the scenic view of the inlet and the Hov dam. The plantation 'Knudsbjerg Plantage' is situated right by the water and has a quite unique vegetation.
