Den Sorte Badestrand - Sønderborg

Beach near Idrætshøjskolen in Sønderborg.

The beach has a bathing jetty and a ramp at the water’s edge provides easy access in a wheel chair. The name den Sorte Badestrand (black beach) originates from a former bathing establishment that was located here and whose buildings were painted black.
