The beach houses in Blokhus
The iconic little white bathhouses on Blokhus beach are a hallmark of the area. Here you can read about the history behind.
Blokhus is a unique treasure - a cozy little town - which offers one of Northern Europe’s best beaches with fine white sand, tall dunes and a roaring, blue ocean.
Blokhus got its name due to the many small houses on the beach in the sixteenth- and seventeenth century (Blokhus translates directly as a block house, however, the houses are more like a beach house in which people used them as changing rooms back in the days). The village remains in harmony with its historical landmarks and the maritime element, meanwhile the modern facilities are also well used.
