In the area around Vitsø there are beach meadows, water holes and bird life with lots of geese and ducks.

In the 18th century the first attempts were made to reclaim land by extending the natural embankment and pumping the water out.
It was one of the earliest reclamation schemes in Denmark, and 11 hectares of meadow were recovered.
The entire process was com pleted in 1871, but was reversed by high winds and flooding the next year.
Today there is a highly characteristic landscape with small lakes formed by digging for pebbles.
