The Isle Fano is situated just off the west coast of the main Jutland peninsula of Denmark. This is just across the water from the city of Esbjerg. Holidays in Isle Fano prove popular for many thousands of tourists every year and this is because there are so many things to do and see here. This is a real paradise for people who love to get up close and personal with nature and the cosy self catering accommodation on Isle Fano really will prove to be the icing on the cake.
The biggest draw, by far, will be the long, sandy beaches that stretch along the west coast of the Isle Fano. These are on the North Sea and provide families with safe bathing opportunities, plus chances to enjoy other activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, jet skiing, canoeing and sailing. There are also fishing opportunities available in the area and there are many established walking trails to explore on the island. Migratory birds are another of the draws for people taking their holidays on Isle Fano and this will be a real dream for ornithologists and people interested in nature in general.
People choose to spend their holidays on Isle Fano as this part of the world really does offer you the chance to completely unwind and feel at one with Mother Nature. There are a few small towns on the island for you to visit at your own pace and these are all strongly connected with a maritime way-of-life. The main town is Nordby, plus other settlements such as Sonderho and Rindby. If you are keen to discover more about the history of this part of Denmark, it is recommended for you to take the ferry across to Esbjerg and visit some of the museums that can be found here. These include The Museum of Shipping and Fishing, Esbjerg Museum and Esbjerg Art Museum.
Visitors on their holidays on Isle Fano should expect a typical temperate climate that is very much influenced by the moderating Gulf Stream. This means that as you are so close to the sea and the land is so low-lying in this part of Denmark, you will rarely experience real extreme-lows during the winter. The summers are usually very mild and rainfall can prove to be as much as problem as back in the UK. Average temperatures will range between around 20 degrees Celsius in July, to 8 degrees in January.
There is a small airport at Esbjerg (EBJ) which has a connecting flight with the UK from Aberdeen (ABZ). This is operated through BMI. Alternatively, DFDS Seaways operates a regular ferry crossing between Harwich and Esbjerg and this is ideal if you want to take your own car on holiday with you. Once in Esbjerg, it is then a short ferry crossing to your self catering accommodation on Isle Fano.
