On Bornholm you are never too far from water, in fact you are never more than 15 minutes away from the crystal clear water of the baltic sea.
There is however a largely varying nature along the coastline. On the south side of the island you'll find wide, sandy beaches. The northern side offers cliffs and hidden gems among the formations, which you can jump from.
On this page, we have selected some of our favourite swimming spots on Bornholm. There are beaches, rocky coasts and harbour baths - it's just up for you to decide where you'd like to jump in the water from.
Beaches on Bornholm
Galløkken strand, Rønne
On the outskirts of Rønne you'll find two larger beaches. In the south there's Galløkken, besides being the name of the beach it also refers to the forest-area that's found by the beach. The beach is made up of 3-5 smaller bays that are all protected by stone walls in the water. The sand is smooth and water is clear. Some smaller stones and pebbles can be found at the edge of the water, further out you'll find larger boulders to jump from.
There are no toilets, and also no possibilities to buy food and drinks nearby. The beach is within walking distance of Rønne Vandrerhjem.
