In the plantation Husby Klitplantage, 14 km towards south, you will find a number of lovely marked walking paths. The plantation stretches from the sea and inland, and therefore you can experience a very varied landscape here.

Worth a visit
The landmark of the town is a mermaid, created by local sculptor, which illustrates the longing for the homecoming of the fishermen. Visit f.x. the wreckage museum 'St. George' in Thorsminde, where you can get a glimpse of daily life onboard the English warships 'St. George' and 'Defence'. The museum was founded after one of the world' largest shipping accidents in the year 1811. Two English ships were shipwrecked here and more than 1,000 lives were lost right outside Torsminde. Hear the tragic story and see objects from the two ships. Among the interesting finds you will find canons, gold coins, music instruments and weapons. The church of Torsminde is rather special as it is established in a former life saving station. In the large manor house Nr. Wosborg from the middle ages you can experience the daily life on a Danish farm.
In Thyboron you will find both Kystcentret Thyboron and Jyllands Akvariet with activities, exhibitions and aquariums. Pat a shark, create your own thunderstorm or start a tornado here (41 km). The old market town Ringkobing is a cosy town with thatched roads and a charming harbour environment (42 km). Ringkobing Museum exhibits finds from an Iron Age settlement in Fjand, among other things a famous carbonised door. Go on a day trip to the open-air museum Hjerl Hede and experience an old village with workshops, farms with animals and fields, shops with good from the old days and much more (64 km).
