In 1935 the municipality bought a large field- and beach area from the manor Moesgaard for public recreational purposes. In the summer this is one of the most popular beaches in Denmark. At the same time an area with forest along the beach was bought too and it was named the The Beach Forest.
Many things to explore
At Abelshoved you will find a group of trees called "Sømærketræerne" and at the foot of the hillside on the very beach you can see the Kristuskilden, a small sparsely waterleading opening in the hillside. The Fiskerhuset is situated further south not far from the fall of Giber Aa (river) that leads directly into the sea.
