In the middle of the forest, you find the oldest amusement park in Denmark - Fårup Sommerland. Fårup Sommerland is one of Denmark’s biggest tourist attractions, and the park is full of crazy rides.
Blokhus has experiences for everyone - big and small. Enjoy one of Northern Europe's best beaches, the theme park Fårup Sommerland, Blokhus Sculpture park, several galleries, and much more.
Blokhus – once a fishing village – is now the centre of a charming international holiday paradise with good seafood restaurants and cosy shops. The beaches, which are among the best in Northern Europe, feature beautiful white dunes, fine sand and clear water – and the water isn’t the only blue thing. Blokhus’ beaches have received the E.U. beach-quality award: the blue flag.
In addition to its beaches, Blokhus itself is a lively and bustling place. Most of the shops, restaurants, inns and ice-cream kiosks are gathered around the town square. This is also where concerts and other activities take place in the summer months. There are several inviting shops and restaurants, the latter often with outdoor seating.
Behind the town and its beach a countryside of gentle forestry, dunes and heathland stretch, ideal for adventures, horse riding, cycling and MTB'ing makes Blokhus a popular holiday destination.
Like in many other cities in Jammerbugten the largest attraction is, of course, the white beaches, which are popular among families. If you're not too fond of the water, the old beach huts and the historic landmark is also interesting to experience, when you're in Blokhus. If you are travelling with kids, the theme park Fårup Sommerland is a must, which has been named the best theme park of the North several times.

Directly north of the town is a pleasant and peaceful area of replanted dunes: Blokhus Klitplantage, which plays host to a wide variety of animal life and at Gateway Blokhus the children can play on the large natural playground. In parts of the forest, dog-owners are allowed to let their animals off the leash, and there are good views across the landscape to be had from many points. The replanted dunes in Hune and Kryle Klit create a beautiful and changing landscape. Blokhus Klitplantage measures 642 hectares and is also perfect for mountain bikers.
In and around Blokhus you’ll find several small museums, galleries and workshops where craftsmen can be found at work. The area around Blokhus also has its fair share of golf courses, and the keen angler will find enough to keep him occupied – you can fish directly from the beach.
One of the town's most visited places is Restaurant Futten, which has a lovely atmosphere in an old timbered house from 1761 and offers great food. To try the wonderful fish dishes, which the coastal cities of Denmark are known for, we would recommend Strandingskroen or Klausen Fisk & Skaldyr in Hune.
Blokhus has a wide variety of accommodation including hotels, holiday centres, campsites and holiday cottages. Most tourists choose to stay in a summer house - find a selection in Blokhus with Feriepartner or Sol & Strand.
If it has to be romantic and a bit luxurious, then take a look at Svinkløv Badehotel, one of Denmark's best beach hotels and one of the few built-in tree. The restaurant at the hotel is also one of the best restaurants in North Jutland and nature is breathtaking.
Blokhus offers lots of activities all-year-round. In May you can experience the largest wool festival in Scandinavia, Blokhus-Løkken Wind Festival during the Pentecost long weekend and at Sankt Hans, you can see a huge bonfire on the beach, when the town celebrates midsummer. During the summer season, you will find a bustling town with lots of activities and events for all sizes. You will find concerts, flea markets and food markets every week. Experience the canon fire at 21:00 when the local canon guild "shoots the down sun". During late summer and in the autumn you can explore the Blokhus Fly-In and Women's Weekend. At Christmas time there are plenty of Christmas markets and activities for kids.
