Restaurant Fjorden, Nakskov Fjord Camping and Hestehoved Marina offer numerous possibilities for leisure activities including beach volleyball and crazy golf.  The shallow waters along the sandy beach afford safe bathing for families with small children and the spectacular 190 metre long bathing jetty ensures that you can also come to the deeper water.
