Shelters at Sjoen

Shelters close to Ærø's southernmost point.

This beautiful shelter and tent site is located on a large public area, which among other things houses a tow place for the local recreational fishermen. The hedges provide good shelter from the wind, which can be quite strong here. The water is nice and fresh, but the beach is quite rocky. If you walk along the beach to the east you can see the remains of Sct. Albert - a defense facility from the Viking Age. The 6 wind turbines that stand in the fields in the hinterland together produce more electricity than is consumed on Ærø.

In Dunkær (2.5 km) there is a free bus to Marstal, Ærøskøbing and Søby.
