On the north side of the bay is Vejle’s popular local beach, Albuen, nestled in beautiful natural surroundings. The appealing, family-friendly city beach with excellent facilities for the disabled, features a superb range of beach amenities including a sandy bathing beach, children’s beach, playground, beach volleyball courts, snack bar, picnic tables and benches, toilet facilities and car park.
Construction of the man-made beach began in 1942. Albuen’s distinctive white sand was sourced from the nearby cape of Trelde Næs and after six years of landscaping the new beach was ready to welcome visitors. The popular beach has undergone a number of maintenance programs over the years, the latest completed in 2005.
The Danish National Cycle Network R5, the East Coast Trail (Østkystruten), runs through the area.
Albuen can be reached by public transport. Take municipal bus route 1 from Vejle city centre directly to Albuen.
