Ulvshale strand

Harald Walker

Mon is a small island just south of Zealand - the island Copenhagen is on. Mon has superb beaches, gently rolling hills and idyllic pastoral scenery. Mon is a perfect get away from the big city of Copenhagen; its slow, easy-going pace creates the perfect atmosphere for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

The main sight on the islands is Mons Klint, the 5,000-year-old chalk cliffs, They drop 128 metres into the sea and are a major tourist attraction for Danes and foreigners alike. In addition, the nearby Klinteskoven woodland is perfect for hiking, picnics and horseriding excursions.

The main town and commercial centre of Mon is Stege. Enjoy a pleasant hour or two window-shopping on Storegade, the main thoroughfare and relax in one of the many cafés and restaurants located there. Pay a visit to the 13th-century Stege Kirke, whose ceiling features some quirky frescoes restored in 1892, or marvel at the Molleporten, one of the best-preserved medieval gates in Denmark.

North of Stege is the Ulvshale strand, a great beach with a wild forest nearby, which offers good hiking opportunities. With much of its landscape taken up by marshland, Mon offers perfect opportunities for the amateur birdwatcher to pass a fascinating afternoon spotting some local and migratory birds from one of the many birdwatching sites scattered strategically around.
