Here, the ocean is hidden behind the large dunes where you can find shelter in one of the hollows. A part of the beach is for nudists while the other part is for everyone else. The access to the beach is covered by wood chips, making it easier for families with children or walking-impaired to cross the dunes. You are not allowed to drive on the beach but there is free parking close to the beach. Do remember to enjoy your walk to the beach which gives you a beautiful sight of the open spaces and good sandy beach.
The area surrounding Houstrup Strand has an interesting and varied wildlife. The nearby Blåbjerg Plantation is a lovely natural area we can only recommend you explore.

There are Put and Take fishing lakes, pay and play golf courses and horseback riding in the area and finally you will find the region's largest water park at Houstrup Strand.
