Beach sailing is allowed on Sønderstrand. Kite-buggies have to use a large area covering about 6 km2 north of Sønderstrandvej, whereas blocarts should use an area covering about 4 km2 south of Sønderstrandvej. Motorists must observe special caution for the 3-wheeled, wind-powered vehicles which have to zigzag across the beach.
Kite-buggies are mostly for advanced users who know the sport, whereas blocarts can be learned fairly quickly after receiving a little instruction. It is possible to rent blocarts and learn how to use them.

Wind and kite surfing
Offshore at Lakolk, wind and kite surfing is permitted in the northern part. You can also drive on the beach all the way down to the water, making it easier to unload equipment and get going. Watching the surfers from the beach is a beautiful sight, but be careful as the sea here is not suited for everyday bathing.
Taking your dog with you
Dogs must be on a leash at all times in towns, in summer-house areas, on the dunes and in the plantations. On the beach, dogs must be kept on leash from 1 April to 30 September. Take care and always bring a bag for your dog’s droppings.
All year-round, dogs can run free in Rømø’s three off-leash dog parks in Lakolk (West of the camping site), in Kirkeby Plantage (at Hviddal Sø lake) and in Vråby Plantage (at the car park on Langdalsvej). Just make sure that you can control your dog and that it comes to you when you call so that it doesn’t bother other dogs and dog owners. Off-leash dog parks are fenced in to separate dogs and game. Therefore, the gates to the off-leash dog park must be kept closed.
Hunting for amber
If you’re not lucky enough to find amber, perhaps it’s because you only look when the sea is warm during summer. Amber floats better when the water is cold and the storms which wash up the amber mostly occur during winter. Look for pieces of amber after a day of heavy storms; they are often hidden in seaweed washed onto the beach. Watch out for seagulls; they’re excellent at finding sea wrack when searching for mussels.
Picnicking and barbecues
On hot summer days, the perfect attraction is picnicking in the sand dunes overlooking the North Sea. If you need to barbecue and want more shelter, Tvismark Plantage is the perfect spot to open your picnic basket and coffee flask. In addition to tables and benches under a large roof, there is a brick barbecue freely available for everyone.
Go ahead - pick berries and mushrooms
Bog whortleberries in sand dunes, cranberries in heather bogs, and dune heaths with crowberries. And don’t forget little yellow-orange and sticky sea buckthorns filled with vitamin C. The heaths on Rømø grow berries and you can pick as many as you like as long as it is for your own use. The same applies for mushrooms in the plantations, where you can find different types of chanterelle, boletus, russula, lactarius, etc.
The Danish Nature Agency has no shelters or other possibilities of overnight stays on Rømø. Free tenting does not exist on Rømø either.
Book an activity
Areas on Rømø run by the Danish Nature Agency are open for events and activities. However, if the activities are likely to affect other people in the countryside, or animals and plants, an application must be made for a permit.
