Ballum is situated right at the Jutland Wadden Sea, but only 14 km away you will find a sandy beach in Emmerlev Klev. Here the beach is suitable for children as it has a sandy bottom and shallow water. Furthermore you have an amazing view of the Jutland Wadden Sea as well as the islands Sild and Rømø from here. If you wish to experience the wide sandy beaches of the west coast, we recommend that you drive to the island Rømø, where you will find the beach Lakolk Strand - one of Europe's widest and most beautiful beaches (23 km).


Experience the characteristic natural landscape with the marsh and the Jutland Wadden Sea ¿ a phenomenon, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Meadows and streams towards north, moors towards south and the sea towards west. Witness the marsh on food or on bicycle and let yourself be fascinated by the rough, but incredible nature with the rich animal life. You are often able to spot the seals that sojourn in the western parts of the Jutland Wadden Sea. The meadow area Ballum Enge is situated right behind the dikes of the sea, and here you are able to observe swans, goose and lapwings. Sometimes during spring and autumn you are able to experience the unforgettable phenomenon 'black sun'. About one million starlings gather shortly before sunset and perform, according to the locals, a drama on the sky.


You will find more golf courses in the area around Ballum and in the rest of southern Jutland, i.a. in Tønder, Arrild, Toftlund and Ribe. The location of Ballum - close to the Jutland Wadden Sea, streams and lakes - provides good fishing possibilities for the angler. Scenic experiences await you along the many marked walking and bicycle paths in the characteristic nature of the area.
