Løkken is a classical beach town on the west coast of North Jutland. You will find some of the best beaches in Denmark, beautiful nature and lots of activities and attractions.

The town of Løkken invites to a stroll through charming streets lined with small, yellow-washed houses, cafés, restaurants and shops – you will be accompanied by the soothing murmur of the waves, the salty smell of the North Sea and sand that has snuck its way into the town from the beach - because a town can hardly be any closer to the beach than Løkken. Løkken beach with its classic beach huts, the dunes and the characteristic fishing boats make visitors return, year after year, and that is not all, because they have found out the secret of what Løkken is like; a place that had it all: shopping, active experiences, fine dining, art and culture and child-friendly beaches.
