According to Lonely Planet, Denmark has a sandy gem tucked away on the island of Bornholm.
The travel guide publisher has ranked Dueodde beach as one the top 20 beaches in Europe.
“Backed by expansive dunes and pines, its sand is as white and soft as talcum powder – so fine-grained, in fact, that it was once used in hourglasses. You can walk for miles, finding space and solitude, and wade out to sea forever with water only reaching your knees.”
Coming in 17th, Dueodde’s lack of light pollution and charming lighthouse were also pointed out.
Dueodde ranked as the third best in the Nordic region behind the list’s number one, Norway’s Haukland Beach, and Rauðasandur in Iceland (12th).
Following Haukland Beach, the top 5 was rounded out by Cala Goloritzè (Italy), West Beach (Scotland), Plage de Palombaggia (Corsica) and Platja Illetes (Spain).
