For an unforgettable holiday surrounded the rugged beauty of cliff-riddled Baltic Sea shores, holidaymakers need to plan to spend time in South Zealand.

Both those looking for sandy beaches and those looking for hiking trails surrounded by untamed vegetation will want to visit this part of Denmark. HomeAway has exciting options in terms of holiday accommodation in Fakse Bay, one of the localities in South Zealand. Among these are bungalows constructed in traditional Danish farmhouse style and apartments suitable for couples or small travelling groups.

Things to do
-Beaches: Though visitors won’t get the kind of tan-inducing sunshine they’ll find in Mediterranean destinations, they will enjoy their time beside the waters of the Baltic. Few other coastlines in the world will provide you with a 21km walk along white cliffs 40m high below which the waters crash. The beaches of the nearby islands provide sandy expanses on which one can relax in relative seclusion. Karrebaeksminde which is found in the Smalandshavet archipelago is one of these spots.
-Experience nature: Walking along the chalk cliffs is an experience any nature lover will cherish but visitors can top it off with a visit to the Mons Klint centre where they’ll get plenty of information concerning the geological intricacies of these formations. On the way there holidaymakers will come across rare orchids and enjoy some scintillating views. They may also come across some fossils.
-Wildlife: Visitors to this locale have more than the odd chance of spotting seal colonies if they take a trip south to the island of Lolland. This is where the Rodsand Game Reserve is located and here holidaymakers can watch these playful creatures frolic about to their hearts’ content. While in Lolland they can take a detour to Malibo and spend time at the Knuthenborg Safaripark. This is where one can see tigers, zebra, foxes and other animals normally not found in this part of the world.
-Gastronomy: Those not up to cooking and living in self-catering holiday rentals in Fakse Bay can seize the opportunity to sample the offerings of South Zealand’s eateries. They won’t be disappointed. A boat trip down to the island of Mon will bring holidaymakers to the Gourmet Gaarden, a family-run diner offering an exciting menu of French-flavoured delicacies. In the Restaurant Babette the French and Danish specialities are translated into English on the menu to give those who speak this language an easier time. Meals are superb and guests are guaranteed value for money.
