The island - also called the Bird Island - is located on the coastal town of Thorsminde on the North Sea facing Nissum Fjord, which contains some of West Jutland's most important bird areas.
The fjord has international significance for ducks, geese and wading birds. Parts of the fjord and some land areas are laid out as a sanctuary to protect the resting and breeding waterfowl. There is also a bird tower, from which there is a good view over the Nissum Fjord Nature Park.
During the flowering period from mid-June to early August, there are thousands of purple cucumber herbs that bloom in the acidic marshes and meadows of seaweed. Be aware that purple cucumber herb is protected just like other cucumber herbs.
In the spring, you can experience deer and foxes in the tube forest, which are used for safe storage.
In the fall you can gather berries and herbs for your spice nap.
