The holiday houses are situated between grain fields and a lovely beach. The southern part of Als is connected with the peninsular Kegnæs through the dam 'Drejet', and this area is scarcely populated. It is peaceful and quiet here, except from the roar of the waves and the whistling of the wind.

The 5 km long beach of Skovmose is said to be the loveliest beach on Als. The wide and sandy beach invites swimming, sunbathing and various beach activities. A volleyball net is available on the beach. It is also very popular to fly with kites here. The water is calm here as the beach is sheltered by Funen, the island Ærø and the German coastline. There are no inlets or coves near Skovmose, and therefore the beach is ideal for walks.

The area 'Dybbøl Banke' contains 10 redoubts and is laid down as a national park. Along the 165 km long coastline of Als the nature is very versatile.
