Kitesurfers and windsurfers hang out on the eastern beach, with gear and lessons available through Hornbæk Surf Shop. For hikers, consider combining the coastal path with a walk through Hornbæk Plantage to create a satisfying loop of around 8km.

There are around a dozen dining/cafe options in Havnevej, Øresundsvej, Friisvej and Nordre Strandvej, which together form a rough rectangle of central streets.
