Telnessanden stretches out on the peninsula with rocky cliffs, smaller swimming beaches, walking trails and great viewpoints. The secret sea snake cave is also located here.

Great beaches with extra warm bathing water
When the weather is nice, it quickly becomes a southern atmosphere on the bathing beaches. The two beautiful, public bathing beaches are located opposite each other. The beach with an onshore wind gets the warmest water possible under the prevailing weather conditions. Telnessanden camping can therefore guarantee the best bathing temperatures in the region regardless of wind direction due to its location. The sand on the beaches is of the finest quality, namely scouring sand from the Ice Age. This makes the sand perfect for building sand castles. At Telnessanden Camping, they therefore organize popular sandcastle competitions.

Canoe and boat hire for a trip to the Sea serpaent cave

If you join to see if the sea snake is there, you will encounter the cave, which is 15 meters deep and dark, you look into pitch darkness. Several children have seen both yellow, green and blue eyes staring in there.
