Most visitors to Rømø rent a cottage for one or two weeks. But it is also possible to stay in hotels or Bed & Breakfasts for a day or two. And if you are in South Jutland it is worth it to go to Rømø for a day trip.

The attraction of Røme is the spectacular nature: the heather, the enormous beaches, the Wadden Sea.

Get around

Entrance with speed limit sign to beach on Rømø

Rømø is a good size for bicycles and there are bicycle paths along the major roads (Havnebyvej and Vesterhavsvej).

It is possible to drive on to the huge beaches at Lakolk and Sønderstrand. But keep an eye on the cars while parked. The tide can come quickly.

Go to the beach - it's the largest sand beach in Northern Europe - during low tide it can be 2,5 wide and 8,5 km long.

Local specialties include the Wadden Sea lamb, which you can see grazing along the causeway to Rømø, and seafood, for example the small brown shrimps.

If you have access to a kitchen or a barbecue you can make a great local fresh meal with vegetables and eggs from one of the honor box produce stands, fish from the shop in Havneby or lamb from the butcher.

You can have a drink at most restaurants and cafes. Havneby Kro has a good bar. On a nice day Hattesgaard is the place to enjoy a drink outside at one of the outside terraces.



Stay Safe

Røme is generally safe, just watch out for the tide.

On the north end Juvre Sand is used for military exercises. When in use a signal ball is raised.

The closest pharmacy is in Skærbæk.
