Just west of Ærøskøbing is Vesterstrand, only a few minutes' walk from marina and camping site.
The fine sandy beach has a beautiful location towards Urehoved and boasts the small beach huts like coloured pearls on a string.
This is child-friendly, shallow and there is a bathing jetty. It is a tradition for the visitors and citizens of the town to head for the beach in the evening to enjoy the sunset. Many light a grill, some may find their SUP board or enjoy a last swim in the warm waves.
