Many people visit Omø to experience our beautiful nature. The sea, the beaches, the forest bank, the cliff, the bog, the meadow, the lake - they all have their own animal and bird life, and plants that are adapted to life on our island.

Sunsets in all kinds of colors, the impressive croaking of green-speckled toads on warm spring evenings, the starry sky, which is extra clear and bright because it is not disturbed by street lights, the roll of the waves against the beach, the silence, which is so noticeable that you can almost hear it, attracts many people.


But also when sky and sea are one and the wind is "'half a pelican'"', when a trip outside requires you to put on Omø's national costume (a blue-red full suit that many fishermen wear daily, but also that many Omø residents have acquired), and when a walk along the beach must be followed by a cup of hot tea or coffee in a cozy living room, the island has its charm.


Omø is full of life - both on land, on the water and in the air.

A large herd of fallow deer lives on the island, where you can meet them all around - and especially at the southern end. 

The sea around the island hides flatfish, trout, cod and hornfish. 


For birdwatchers, the island is a bit of a paradise, where you can find several rare species.

Omø has many different types of landscape to offer:

The forest bankat 24 meters, which is the island's highest point, and from which there is a fantastic view over the whole of Omø, the Great Belt Bridge, Funen, the Smålandsfarvandet and Langeland.


The forest cliff, which with its almost vertical cliffs stands 24 meters into the air. here it is possible to see the layers and displacements of the deposits of the glaciers that traveled over the island from different directions during the Ice Age. In the cliffs there is a teeming life of terns flying to and from the 75 cm deep nest holes in the cliff to feed their young.


Omø Lake- a low-lying area where the Stone Age sea for approx. 5000 years ago, Omø split into two islands - a higher northern part, Skovbanken, and a lower southern part. Seawalls and uplifts have over time united the two islands.


The moss, which is formed by two seawall systems that have incorporated the small hom on which the Omø Lighthouse is built. The marsh lies below sea level, and therefore banks and dykes have been built to protect the coast.


The dragon, which is one of many lovely bathing beaches.


The ear, which is the southern tip of the island. Here, the coastline consists of huge stone embankments. Behind the stone ramparts, in the late 1800s, tunnels for the Kiel Canal were dug.


Omø is a symphony for most of your senses. Whether you know the names of flowers and birds or not, you will have the opportunity to be intoxicated by colors, sounds, smells and sights that you rarely see and experience elsewhere.

Listen to the timpani of the reed drum, which sounds like blowing into an empty bottle, the 'cone' of the beach toads, the 'pig howl' of the gray-throated loon, the purr of the double snipe as it spreads its tail feathers as it dives into the air, and the cooing of the eiders at sea.

Look at the many greylag geese, the rare mallards, mallards and mallards in the bog, the reed hawk patrolling the fields in search of mice and small birds, the heron strutting on the fallow fields in search of marsh pigs, and enjoy the many waders, shorebirds, robins and vipers. Spring and autumn's large bird migrations often pass by Omø and can be observed with advantage from the southern tip of the island.

Enjoy the scent and sight of the rich flora of the meadows, where the white 'Præstemadamme' (grainy stonewort) and the light purple 'Degnemadamme' (meadow cress) together with the yellow buttercups (onion buttercup and biting buttercup) together with grasses and horsetails form a colorful spectacle. The beautiful pink carpet of the 'Ryebread flowers' (English grass), kvell, beach goosefoot and beach asters.
