We are exploring the south eastern part of the island of Fyn for a bit and we drive to a small peninsula of Helnæs. The peninsula used to be an island but they have connected it to the island of Fyn by a small dam which you can drive and get out to the peninsula.
Helnæs is a nice place to go and explore for a bit but you will need your own transport – either bike, car or boat. The area doesn’t have any major sights so it is unlikely to be crowded no matter when you come – but there are a few minor sights which are worth going out and exploring.
The first thing you will notice just after arriving at the peninsula is a little hill you can go to the top and enjoy the view of the peninsula and the road leading out to the peninsula which looks interesting from above.
After a quick stop at the top of the peninsula we reach the main town with a little church. The church was located behind a lot of purple flowers – though this will only be a seasonal thing so maybe the view of the church is less interesting without the extra colours added to the church.
From close to the church there is a little dirt road which looks a bit sketchy but the road is ok to drive. When you reach the end of the road there is some good views of the small cliffs down at the water.
A final point of interest is going to the old light house which helps guide the ships of the area which is popular by sailors since it is a pretty area with many small harbors where they can stay for a night.
