Near the bus stop at Dueodde, and seen from great parts of the beach itself, is the famous lighthouse. As lighthouses come, this is quite a narrow one and not as impressive as some. However, you see a good deal of southern Bornholm and the Baltic Sea if you climb to its top for a few crowns. It's usually open until just befor dusk.
One of Scandinavia's most famous beaches and definately one of the top Danish ones. The sand is white like a tropical beach and very fine. It has been exported around the world for hour glasses and as ink sand.
The beach starts just outside Snogebæk and expands along the southernmost point of Bornholm to its most famous part which you can also reach by bus. At the bus stop, there are a handful of kiosks and restaurants, a camp site and a hotel and you can easily reach the hostel and other camp site (see accommodation tip) through a short forest walk. A wooden gangway through the dunes take you to the beach itself which is probably quite packed on a sunny day but which is huge so you will find space. On less sunny days, it is a fantastic place just for a romantic stroll or a jog.
I had been recommended a pit stop here by a colleague who is local and she was not wrong. Homemade chocolate is their speciality but there are also other goodies such as coffee. The chocolate pralines often comes as truffle-like concoctions with orange, mint etc. and children might prefer the white chocolate dolphins...The Kjaerstrups (or rather Ms Kjær and Mr Bræstrup), founded their shop in the late 90s when they returned to their native island from Copenhagen careers and so far, they seem to do well judging by the amount of cars outside the shop. They've even opened a shop in Copenhagen too.
What to buy: According to taste :)
I have to stress that I have German family and nothing against Germans! However, at Dueodde they really dominate, even compared to the rest of Bornholm. As you can see in this picture, even the newspaper racks ARE German despite being in Denmark, and on our campsite, our daughter was the only non-German speaking child in the playground, I was approached by a lady who took for granted that I spoke German when she asked for the beach etc.
Unique Suggestions: I'm sure you'll enjoy Dueodde neverheless :)
Favorite thing: Much of life in Snogebaek revolves around the little harbour with its long jetty (as the beach is shallow). Here you find souvenir shops and restaurants and sometimes even flea markets and it is a nice place to stroll around.
