The best beach for swimming on Drejø

Forside Drejø

This fantastic shelter is on the south side of the beautiful island of Drejø. The water and the beach here are the best on the island and the view to Ærø is simply magnificent. That is why many of the islanders also choose to swim here, even in winter. In summer, they put out a bathing jetty. You can enjoy the lovely landscape here or take an unforgettable tour around the island. Drejø by and Gammelhavn are definitely worth a visit. In the village, there are a supermarket, an inn and Gammel Elmegaard Museum. If you come to the island by ferry, you can walk along the water all the way to the shelter taking the path along the dike. You can also put up a tent on the site. No prior reservations are necessary  for this. Overnight stays in a tent are paid on site. The place is owned and managed by Jonas Jespersen who lives on Drejø.
