Hyby Beach is a quiet spot and a great place to swim for the whole family.
Hyby Beach: Beach in scenic surroundings
Hyby Beach is Fredericia town centre's cosy natural beach. The 1.4-km blue flag sandy beach is divided into many small coves, making it very family friendly. The beach area is sheltered by low scrub and reed beds and protected from the north and east winds by high slopes. Hyby Beach is also a good picnic beach with plenty of space to sit and enjoy your food in a quiet environment.
Facilities on and near Hyby Beach
The long stretch of beach has both sandy and pebbled areas. The many large rocks that line the beach provide excellent rock pools for crab fishing and for growing variations of edible seaweed.
Naturpark Lillebælt has produced several guides on edible seaweed along the Little Belt coast. Find the videos here!
The beach has lifeguards, life-saving and first-aid equipment, telephone coverage and instructions in case of accidents.
Hyby Beach by Lillebælts Allé
At the entrance to Hyby Strand at Lillebælts Allé, there is parking, a public disabled toilet and two long picnic tables. There is also a long pier with a small platform from which you can fish for crabs, as well as a fire pit, which you’re free to use. During the summer period (July–August), the municipality provides free firewood for the campfire every Friday, but if you want to be absolutely sure you have enough firewood, it’s always worth bringing your own.
