Omø is surrounded by beaches - some more suitable for bathing than others - but all beaches have their own unique design

worth a visit - in all weathers.



A proper sandy beach with no admixture of pebbles can be found in a few places, namely west of Kirkehavn, along Draget on the east coast and to a small extent at Revspidsen. Since there are ten inflows in these places! dune formation, it is also here that many of the island's summer visitors unfold.

The dune formation takes place around strong tufts of mare straw and helmets. Marehalm occurs scattered all around the island along all types of coast, whereas helmets are only found in the three places where there is a sandy beach. At Revspidsen, a few tufts grow from the cross between hjælme and mountain reed, the so-called Østersø hjælme. Mountain reeds are abundant in several locations on the western part of the island.

At the far end of the sea cane, you often find reed-quick, which willingly mixes with alm. swift, which is frequently found a little further into the more stable vegetation. In the outer zone, beach beet and beach cabbage appear particularly frequently, mixed with some sodawort, seagrass, beach mustard and various species of sedge.

The more stable vegetation further from the coastline is dominated by alm. quick, curly sedge, biting stonewort, yellow sedge, gray gorse, beach wormwood and sand star mixed with vår firecup as well as several stray species such as strawberries and asparagus. In addition, there are scattered groups of the Atlantic beach plant St. John's wort at all three locations. The oldest and innermost part of the sandy beach vegetation ends with associations with red fescue, dog grass, narrow-leaved turnip grass, common pimpinelle and English grass.


As the island is made up of two moraine mounds, it is natural that by far the largest part of the coastline is pebble beach. Most typically it is developed along the west coast at Kirkehavn and the east coast at Skovklint. The largest walking blocks are found here, while along the island's southern coasts there are large deposits of pebble material in several series of seawalls.

The most frequent stony beach plants are curly sedge, beach beet, beach heirloom, beach cabbage, foal's foot, creeping potential and flax-leaved codmouth. On the actual pebble embankments, there are also yellow sedges, sedges, biting stonewort, English grass, red fescue and . nodding lime. Deep towards the slopes you can see lobed plantain, toothless spring lettuce and cochlear species.
