Copenhagen, Denmark

Danish below
Amager Strandpark is Copenhagen's largest beach just 5 km from the center. Amager Strandpark has a lagoon, city park and lots of activities all year round. The beach is a sandy beach with a sandy bottom. The beach is facing the Sound and borders the Municipality of Tårnby on the southern part. The bathing water beach area has a length of 4.6 km and is 400 m in the widest place. The water depth is approx. 1.5 m deep until 30 m from shore. After 30 m from shore, the water depth changes to 3-4 m deep. The lagoon has a water depth of 2 m at the deepest point. The water is salt. The water flow is weak to strong, predominantly from the north and south. Amager Strand is open all year round, but there are only lifeguards from June 23 to August 31, at. 10: 00-18: 00. Helgoland's bathhouse, located north-east of Amager Strand, is available to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week from May 1st to 1 October 1st. Helgoland will be manned by lifeguards during the same period and time, as is the case with Amager Strand. The risk of blue-green algae is considered to be small. The risk of phytoplankton growth and macroalgae is estimated to be small.

Stranden ligger ud mod Øresund og grænser mod Tårnby Kommune på den sydlige del. Badevandsprofilet har en længde på 4,6 km og er 400 m på det bredeste sted. Vanddybden er ca. 1,5 m 30 m ude. Efter 30 m er vanddybden 3-4 m. Lagunen har en vanddybde på 2 m på det dybeste sted. Vandet er salt. Vandstrømmen er svag til stærk, overvejende fra nordlig og sydlig retning. Amager Strand er åben hele året, men der er kun livreddere fra 23. juni til 31. august, kl. 10:00-18:00. Helgoland Søbadeanstalt, der ligger nordligst på Amager Strand, vil være tilgængelig for offentligheden døgnet rundt, alle ugens dage fra 1. maj til 1. oktober. Helgoland vil være bemandet med livreddere i samme periode og tidsrum, som det er tilfældet med Amager Strand. Risiko for blågrønalger vurderes at være lille. Risiko for fytoplanktonvækst og makroalger vurderes at være lille.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

For more information, please visit the World Health Organization public resource on COVID-19.

Monitoring Frequency

Amager Strandpark Nord is sampled daily from January 1st to December 31st.

Source Information

The City of Copenhagen monitors water quality at the 11 bathing areas in Copenhagen from January 1st to December 31st. Bathing waters are monitored for indicator bacteria (E.coli and Intestinal Enterococci) according to the New Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC). Water quality is tested and monitored in two forms: Physical water quality samples and a technical alert system called the Bathing Water Forecast (BWF) System. The limit values for good bathing water quality are 500 E. coli per 100ml of water and 200 Enterococci per 100ml. Claire Lawson updates the status of each bathing area as soon as test results become available.
