We have stayed a bit around Følle Strand. It is a small area with summerhouses which seems to be particularly popular for the people living in Aarhus which is only half an hour drive away. There seems to be a lot of people out here during the warm days – particularly in the weekend. The people come out mainly to enjoy the life at the nice beach at Følle and to a lesser extent the neighboring beach of Ugelbølle.
It is a nice sandy beach so it is a good place to relax for a bit. There usually are some birds down at the beach area as well. At one stage I saw a large group of ducks swimming just off the shore. At first I wondered what it was because the ducks were at a distance and they were so numerous I was sure it was bird or something floating around on the sea – I had to get a bit closer to actually be able to distinguish the individual ducks.
As is usually the case with Danish beaches there isn’t a lot of facilities on the beach so the only place to get a bite to eat or an ice cream is at a small fast-food joint just on the other side of the road which runs pass Følle Strand.
Even if you have no interest of going to the beach it is still a good area to use as a base for exploring the surrounding area of Djursland with Mols Bjerge national park. It is also just a short drive to Aarhus or you can take the bus – though you will need to walk for a bit since the buses only drives along the main highway and not down at the beach.
