Landslides of clay and sand often makes the beach impassable.
One can go down to the beach from the north in Lønstrup and from the south in Nr. Lyngby (The distance between is 6.5 km). It is also possible to come down to the beach through the gorge called Grønne Rende south of the lighthouse. This can only be advised if done with caution and in good weather.
Amber can be found on the beach. It can be amber from old strata in the cliff, but most often it can be found at the edge of the water after very windy weather. Amber can only be found where seaweed is deposited together with the so-called amber sticks. Amber sticks are small, black pieces of wood from old forests with the same specific gravity as amber, and therefore they are always deposited together.
The clams and other animal remains found along the beach tell us about the rich and varied animal life in the sea in the shallow water where we bathe. The best would be to dive down and study it. The next best is to study it second hand here on the coast.
