Fanø is a Danish island that’s 16km long and 5km wide, located off the coast of southwestern Denmark. You can reach the island through a ferry from the city of Esbjerg. One of the many charming traits of this island is that its entire western shore is comprised of beaches, and the sea off the northwest end is home to Søren-Jessens-Sand: an impressive sandbank. Driving to the beach, and taking in the unspoilt, windswept beauty is the best way to enjoy the day here.
