About the beach and the surroundings
Amager Beach consists of an island with wide sandy beaches, a lagune and the beach along Amager Strandvej. The island is manmade and was built in 2004-2005. There has been a beach (along Amager Strandvej) since the 1930s. The island is 2 km. long and the lagune is 400 meters at the widest point. The island is divided into two parts, each with it’s own distinctive character. The northern part of the island has a more natural, ’wild’ beach look, with low sand dunes, while the southern part is a city beach and park. Amager Beach is protected by law for recreational purposes.
