A lovely holiday in Balka-Snogebæk
Balka Holiday Apartments are located just 400 meters from Balka Beach, one of the best beaches on Bornholm. Look forward to a beautiful and very child friendly beach, with shallow waters.
Balka boasts two restaurants, as well as the charming beach café “Weekend-Hytten”. A great tip is to take the short walk along the beach, or the woods, to the small fishing village Snogebæk, where the atmosphere on the harbour is great; cafes, restaurants, smokehouse, and shops. Pay a visit to the infamous café “Sørens Værtshus”, with live music and good vibes. The crowd is a wonderful mix of children, youngsters, and adults, ensuring fun for the whole family. If you are bringing children, they will be impressed with the old lifeboat hanging from the ceiling, in which they can take a swing.
Experience Snogebæk Harbour
Take a walk along the harbour and have a chat with the local fishermen. Not all of their stories are true – but they are entertaining. If you have brought your fishing rods, you might be able to catch your dinner right off the pier – alternatively, you can cheat, and buy delicious fish for the barbeque from the fishmonger’s.
If you need to take your VISA card out for a spin, we recommend a visit to the Pernille Bülow Design Shop, with lots of temptations, such as textiles and art crafts.
Great opportunities for bicycling
The wide reaching web of bicycle lanes on Bornholm can be accessed less than 50 meters from Balka Holiday Apartments, and you are staying just 300 meters from a bicycle rental shop. Hire a bicycle and experience the beautiful landscape. Try bicycling to Dueodde, where you can see most of Southern Bornholm from Dueodde Lighthouse. Perhaps you go the approximately 4 kilometres along the old railway to Nexø, a great trip through the woods, close to the sea.
In Nexø, both the harbour and town are charming, and offers plenty of opportunities for shopping. Do visit Nexø Museum, where you can hear the dramatic story of the days in May 1945, when Russian bombers tore Nexø apart with its bombs. Then, Russian troops occupied all of Bornholm, an occupation that lasted until 1946.
