Although Denmark isn't known for its surfing, the Aarhus coast is a fine place for fledglings to get their start. Try heading north to Akrogen Beach, named by the Canadian Globe & Mail as one of the best beaches in the world, mostly for its combination of summer skin and sun, although we can't complain about the clear, blue water and fine sand. Combine that with the beautiful Danish men and women who have a penchant for ditching their swimwear and you've got a prime day trip option if you're staying in Aarhus.
Note:Another good swimming location backed by the forests of Moesgaard is Moesgaard Beach on Aarhus Bay. Akrogen Beach is featured on our map.
