A fairy tale thatched cottage restaurant (hence the name - the Yellow Cottage) on the Danish Riviera, overlooking the beach, which serves fantastic Modern Danish food. Just 20 mins from Copenhagen station so a great day out too. It's tiny though (seats about 15!) so you'll need to book.
(5 mins walk from Klampenborg station, get outside, turn right and head towards the water!)
This sandy playground of the young and beautiful is located just 20 minutes north of Copenhagen on the S-train line to Klampenborg. With views of Sweden across the sea, this stretch of fine sand is lively on hot summer days. Alternatively, try the charming, century-old sea baths next door called Bellevue Beach Baths.
Take the "C" line of the S-trains from Copenhagen; www.bellevuestrandbad.dk/?int_pageId=1
The Beach is fantastic, and the water (Kattegat) probably the cleanest in Europe in a very friendly and relaxing village. Season runs from June-September.
Tisvildeleje is situated on the north coast of Denmark. Nearest train station Tisvildeleje, approx 1 1/2 hours trainride from Copenhagen airport.
It’s secret mostly because Google Earth’s satellite photos are so outdated that it doesn’t even exist. Copenhagen’s new riviera, Amager Strandpark, was inaugurated this year and puts a massive recreation area with beaches, lagoons and outdoorsy pursuits within a 15 minute bike ride from the city. A man-made island juts out into the sea towards Sweden from the island of Amager just to the south of Copenhagen and will undoubtedly be a popular summer destination. Copenhagen doesn’t lack great beaches. There are long stretches to the south and trendy beaches to the north, but the new beach is an impressive attempt to create new, exciting areas for recreation close to the city.
Located along Amager Strandvej on the island of Amager.
Reached by metro to Lergravsparken station and a 15 minute walk along Øresundsvej or by bus #12 from the Town Hall Square or the airport.
After a 30-minute train ride out of Central Station, through suburbia and into what appears to a one-way mission to getting lost, the Louisiana Museum is will worth the visit. A fantastic building, nestled on the coast, and inside - Picasso, Warhol, (Danish ..he he) Bacon and a variety of gems of modern art. Once you've had your fill of art, wander outside to the nearby grounds and beaches. It's a beautiful and intimate setting, with treats like Henry Moore sculptures and amazing views as a background ... I loved it!
