Bovbjerg is situated right next to the village Ferring, 10 km south of the holiday area Vejlby Klit and 14 km west of the commercial town Lemvig. Bovbjerg is a quiet and popular holiday area with a rich artistic life, a museum, a gallery as well as a few shops and restaurants. The 26 m high red lighthouse Bovbjerg Fyr is located right at the steep cliffs. The lighthouse is the highest point of the area, and from here it is possible to see as far as 35 km away. In this area you can fish, swim, hike, drive your bicycle, fly with a kite, hang glide, paraglide or visit museums.
The beach is a wide sandy beach with 30-40 m high cliffs. Stairs lead down to the beach. Flying with kites, hang gliding, paragliding and flying with small model planes are popular activities on this windy beach. It is not allowed, or possible, to bring your car to the beach here.
The characteristic steep slopes at Bovbjerg stretch over about 3.5 km. All along the coast the spectacular views of the sea can be enjoyed while walking, riding a bike or driving in a car. At the large wetlands around the 5 km long lake Ferring Sø, situated right north of Bovbjerg, you will find a substantial flock of birds. The distance between the North Sea and the lake Ferring Sø is no more than 1.5 km. The 6.7 hectares large plantation Klosterhede Plantage, containing forest, open moor areas and stream valleys, is located 10 km inland from the coast.
The area invites walks on the beach, along the cliffs and around the lake Ferring Sø. The possibilities of hikes and bicycle rides are good here. One of the most popular walking routes 'udsigtsruten' (the route of views) begins in the town Ferring, leads you along the edge of the cliff, past the lighthouse Bovbjerg Fyr, to the church of Trans and back along the beach. Because of the high cliffs hang gliding and paragliding are very popular activities here. Anglers have good possibilities for a haul in the sea, in the inlet as well as in the fishpond Vejlby Klit Fiskesø. Rent for example your own boat and sail on the lake Ferring Sø. Furthermore, it is possible to surf in the area.
