Here you can take a break on the promenade or buy refreshments Urbania Beach Bar.

The path then goes north towards the northern part of Østerstrand, also called Hyby Strand. Here you can enjoy a more wild coastal nature with salt marshes and swamp areas.

Enjoy Lillebælt

On the entire trip on the Strandstien, you walk along the Lillebælt coastline. The entire coastal area is part of Nature Park Lillebælt, Denmark's largest nature park. Along the way, you may be lucky enough to spot a porpoise, the small whale that lives in the belt. Lillebælt has one of the world's largest populations of porpoises, so keep an eye on the water surface!

Both Østerstrand and Hyby Strand are Blue Flag bathing beaches, so you can easily combine your trip on the Strandstien with a bathing trip in the Little Belt.
