Rudbøl is situated only a few km from the Wadden Sea, but the nearest sandy beach lies by Emmerlev Klev, 13 km towards north. This beach has a sandy bottom and shallow water and therefore it is very suitable for children. Furthermore, you have a fabulous view of the Wadden Sea and the islands Sild and Rømø from Emmerlev Klev. If you wish to experience the large, wide and white sandy beaches of the North Sea, you can go on a trip to the island Rømø, where you will find one of Europe's widest and the most beautiful beaches 'Lakolk Strand' (48 km). After a storm it is sometimes possible to find amber along the shores of the Wadden Sea and on the beach of Rømø.


The level marshland, surrounding Rudbøl, has a rich bird life. The lake 'Rudbøl Sø' lies right by the town, and the stream 'Vidå', which is abounding in fish, meanders around the town. The marsh and the dikes protect the area against the Watten Sea year round. The preserved area around Højer, 9 km towards north, has a rich bird life, which can be observed from the many hiking trails. Often you are able to observe seals, which stay in the western parts of the Wadden Sea, but often seek towards the floodgate Højer Sluse in order to find food. Every spring and autumn you can be fortunate enough to experience the unforgettable phenomenon 'black sun'. One million starlings gather shortly before sunset, and perform, according to the locals, a drama in the sky. The nature of the area is both rough and manifold. Follow f.x. the path 'Æ Markmandssti' over the meadows 'Husum Enge' by Ballum and experience the distinguished and quite unique marsh.

The characteristic nature of the area can be explored on foot or on bicycle along the many walking and bicycle paths of the area.
