If all you’re after is a long stretch of white sand, Tornby Strand delivers it in spades (and buckets), 5km south of Hirtshals. As the sand is compact enough to drive on, many park next to the breakers. Hiking is possible among the high mounded dunes and into the coastal woodlands that back the southern side of the beach.
Tornby Strand can be reached from Hirtshals via Rte 55 and Tornby Strandvej. The village here has a summer camping ground and a handful of sleeping and eating options.
