Welcome to Marielyst
Marielyst is one of Denmark’s prime beach-vacation areas, yet visiting outside the busy midsummer holiday weeks you'd never know it. Standing on the glorious multi-kilometre strip of white sand, all that's visible is apparently unspoiled coastline, separated from any development by a wide reed-grass dune-sward and backed by what appears to be an unbroken barrier of forest. Behind that lurk the town's 6000-plus well-spaced holiday homes stretching all the way to Gedser. But even in summer, the beach is long enough that you should be able to find a relatively private patch of your own.
