There is something for everybody. See our activity calender.

Amber 
When it's been blowing for a couple of days from the west or southwest, and it becomes quiet with
calm water, conditions are favorable for finding amber. Most likely the amber will flow into the beach along with seabed and seaweed plants.
Many collectors seek the ravine in the low depth water.
Fanø beach has been the biggest supplier of amber throughout the years - the flat beach and the
highly salty water makes it easier on the amber to float in.

Biking and hiking
We love cycling on Fanø. We have many lovely routes, through Sønderho's thatched houses, along the beach or in the woods. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy Fanø by bike. We even have a mountain bike route with a high fun factor and a guarantee to get the pulse up.

There are 4 marked walks that guides you through a wide part of Fanø natural habitats. The hikes are all marked with yellow color on low wooden posts in the woods The forest is rich in plant life and wildlife. In August, there is also the most beautiful flora of heather.

Lidt om Fanø's historie

Kun 10 minutters sejlads fra Esbjerg, ligger Danmarks skønneste ø – Fanø...

Fanø bærer på en spændende historie, som afspejler sig i det samfund som øboerne lever i.

De to skipperbyer Nordby og Sønderho, med deres stråtækte huse og små gader er alle medvirkende årsager til at Fanø i mere end 100 år har været et helt fantastisk populært feriemål for folk i Danmark og fra udlandet.

Gaderne og atmosfæren i Nordby og Sønderho, står som levende minder om Fanøs maritime storhedstid der startede i ca. 1750, og sluttede i takt med 1. Verdenskrigs indtog.

Fanø er en lille ø på kun 56 km2. Geologisk set er det en meget ung ø – kun få tusinde år gammel.

Øen er dannet ved, at vind og havstrømme har aflejret en eller flere sand banker, der i årenes løb er vokset og er blevet dækket af plantevækst. En proces der fortsætter den dag i dag. Der sker bl.a. en stadig tilførsel af sand til øens vestkyst.

I dag er Fanø et levende og aktivt samfund med ca. 3.200 indbyggere. De fleste af øens borgere bor i de 2 historiske søfartsbyer Nordby og Sønderho, mens turismen er centreret omkring Fanø Bad, Rindby og Sønderho.
