The evocative fishing village Karrebæksminde is located in the bay Karrebæksminde Bugt in the waters Smålandsfarvandet and is connected with the green and scenic island Enø a the short bascule bridge, often referred to as the grasshopper bridge. You will find a bathing beach, marinas, shops, restaurants and ice-cream stalls right around the bridge on both the Karrebæksminde side and the Enø side.

Here you can enjoy freshly smoked fish with a view of the sea, stroll around in the 3 cosy harbours with fishing and leisure boats, visit a fishing and town museum, admire the beautiful mill, which is the landmark of Karrebæksminde, and perhaps take part in some of the many arrangements in the town.

During the high season lifeguards keep a watchful eye on the bathing guests.

On the island Enø nature is very unique and unspoiled. On the northern part of Enø you will find fields, woodlands and coastal stretches. The southern part of the island, Enø Overdrev, is a preserved bird sanctuary. The bird sanctuary consists of meadows, which are pastured by cattle and horses, and wetlands with an abundance of birds. From this area you can also experience seals, if you are in luck. The bay and the sea around Enø have been appointed both Ramsar and EU bird protection area.
