In 2014 broke the war seriously, as the Extra Magazine in cooperation with the DMI did an analysis of where there was the most hours of sunshine. Here was the island of Bornholm beaten by the stick.
the island of Samso was selected as the new sunshine-sheriff in the Danish island waters. And the island in the middle between Zealand and Jutland has more than just sunshine to offer. Samsø is a must if you are going on holiday in Denmark. Especially in the high season there is almost more life than on Ibiza in the good old 90's.
The biggest magnet in the summer months and especially in week 29 is the Bale, where the yachts dock in the hundreds. In the harbour are boats close by in an advanced version of tetris, and the many people in swimsuits causing it to smolder of life. If you love life, party and the happy summer days, then the Bale is the place to be.
Three sharp advice in the Bale
don't Cheat yourself of a lunch on it the Smokehouse, where fiskefrikadellerne tastes, as they were taken directly out of the sea. The tables are located on a terrace by the water, so you get a sense that you're almost sitting out in the sea. If you are more into Italian food, so is Don Juan a little further inside the Bale is also a certain-inducing experience.
If you will on the beach and looking out towards the water, so there is both the beach to the right and to the left. Take the beach to the right. To the left is filled with stones in the water, while you go completely free to the right, and here, there are also plenty of dining opportunities. People, there are plenty of no matter what.
the Bale is filled with people, and you know it in the local Dagli'Brugsen, situated in the middle of the marina. The prices are significantly higher than in the supermarkets in Tranebjerg four-five kilometres away. So up on the bike or in the car, if you need to buy great check.

You do not get the whole island experience, if you are only in the Bale, which can quickly become crowded with tourists. Fortunately, there is plenty of opportunity to explore the island, which really came on the map, as Lars Bom was playing 'Cop on Samsø'.
If you do not know much to the island itself, you have at least heard of the potatoes. And they are in the degree is worth to put the teeth in. Around on the whole island you will find small stalls with home-grown potatoes and other vegetables, so make sure you have småmønter in the pockets to give these a visit.
far to the north lies the quaint little town of Nordby. Together with the town's landmark, the bell tower from 1857, charmer the pond on any visitors. When you reel around in the streets, it feels almost like being back in the 1880's.
Once you have enjoyed an ice-cream, beer or coffee in the quiet surroundings, it is natural to visit the old post office, which is decorated as it was in the 20's. If you are fond of wet goods, Samsø Bryghus a nice place to get a taste and a report on the brewery's history.
A perfect place to spend an afternoon, when the sand on the beach, teasing, and the rumen has been a snas for red.
On the way to Nordby is one of the most important sites of the old Danish vikings. The channel over the island, Kanhavekanalen. The 500 meter long channel is known as the largest engineering.
the Sun is shining so much on the island, that it can make almost hurt the eyes. Here for lunch in the Bale. Private
The strategic location meant that the vikings could hide in the canal and lie there and wait for the enemy that was attacked.
at the same time, they could escape over the island, while the enemy was forced to sail around it.
A brilliant and fascinating area, where it is worth to eat a lunch at one of the established benches.
Although Samsø has lots to offer, we not outside of the island. And it should be utilized. All the way around is filled with wonderful sandy beaches, which can make even Miami to fade away.

But some are obviously better than others. A small hidden strandperle, you will find at Toftebjerg on the western side. Here is a small car park, where you can park the sled and go the few metres down to the beach. Even in high season, there are not many who have discovered the quiet sandy beach.
at the same time, the beach is filled with reefs, so it is a great place for the kids too, who feel that they can come up with far out in the water. It is definitely worth the trip, and if you're a little fresh, can also be reached by bike. If you want the ultimate in alone-experience, so is Mårup Beach ideal.
the Drive from the southern part of the island is a little long, but you come up to a place where you are Palle alone on the beach. Sandy beaches can be too much, when it crawls up the completely wrong places.

But it is fortunately advice. In Vesterløkken and in Sædvig are two charming pebble beaches with associated jetty. If you're looking a little, it is also possible to find a place in the dunes, where you can settle down on the grass.
Three things you must experience on the island of Samsø
the Festival organizers call it for Denmark ' most cosy festival, and there is something about the talk. The festival is neither too big or too small, so you can both experience some of the country's biggest artists and at the same time enjoy the intimacy. At the same time, it's not like the biggest festivals in Denmark, where there is a greater chance to win in the lotto than to find her friends. The entire festival costs 1200 bucks, if you order in august. Subsequently, they rise gradually 100 crowns, the longer you wait. A day ticket costs 600-700 dollars.
Near Nordby is it, as the locals call the world's largest maze. A great experience for both children and adults, where you can select the questions theme. It all comes to answer correctly, and if you're doing it, and you end up in the middle. The price is 55 dollars for one child and 65 kroner for adults.

Samsø in the high season and the island outside of the season are two different worlds. For several years we have played a house in Vesterløkken with space for six people in July. It costs 4500 per. week, but if you are not dependent on school holidays, it can be obtained much cheaper in other weeks. On The Feriehusudlejnings website, there are plenty of options.
the Ferry to the island costs 200-400 dollars per. way, but remember that you must book in good time. The sooner you order, the cheaper you get the tickets. There may also be sold out, if you are too late.
