The town of Tordenskjold, Frederikshavn, is situated right by the Kattegat and behind the town, scenic and undulating forest areas characterize the nature.

Right north of town, Denmark's only palm beach has been established. Here you can also make use of a beach volley course. At the local beach 'Nordstrand' the water is shallow and therefore it is suitable for children. Dunes shelter the beach. From here you can enjoy the view of the 7 islands 'Hirsholmene'.
The beach of Bratten is a good, wide and sandy beach with dunes and Blue Flag.
