If you are an outdoorsy type, the small town of Klitmöller (approximately two hours drive from Aarhus) is an ideal destination. The town is colloquially known as “the cold Hawaii”, and is renowned for its beaches and windsurfing. Surfing is also available and in the summer, the beaches are perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
Esbjerg is a large seaport town located 16 kilometres west of Aarhus that has a lot to offer. The town has several historically interesting sights, but also plenty of shopping opportunities and museums. Given that Esbjerg is an old fishing town, the sea is never far away.
