When the sun shines the Danish really know how to enjoy it. If you manage a trip to Copenhagen in the summer months, do not miss this outdoor swimming spot which pretty much sums up the Danish attitude to design: simple, effective and beautiful. Kastrup Søbad literally meaning sea bath, is a large wooden pavilion leading from the beach. The structure undulates and curves creating a buffer from sea winds and various points for sitting, sunbathing and diving into the Baltic Sea. The lowest level steps down into the water and contains showers and lockers. The highest point gives fantastic views of the beach and Sweden across the sea. The surroundings are brilliant for walking, biking and roller-skating. There is also a marina and facilities nearby for wind surfing, kite surfing and canoeing.
An easy ten minute walk from Femøren underground station along the beach. The station is on a line between Copenhagen and Copenhagen airport, it takes a maximum of 15 minutes from the centre of town and trains are frequent.
