The west coast's signature, in addition to the beaches and the North Sea, is the band of dunes that stretches from north to south. At Badevej in Søndervig, the band consists of just a single row of dunes, but north and south of the seaside resort the band is up to 500 m wide. In the dunes, there is a multitude of plants and animals both on the dunes and in the outer dune range. Closest to the beach and the sea, marten grass and helmets wave in the westerly wind while their roots hold on to the sand, further inland blueberry bushes, rose hips, hawthorn and many other hardy species participate in the battle for space, because it requires its plant to take root in the salty air by the North Sea . In spring, going flower hunting in the dunes can be an excursion in itself
The many paths that criss-cross through the dune landscape are not only traveled by beach-loving children and adults on their way to the North Sea. Despite the harsh climate, the dunes of Søndervig teem with life.
