Especially in the old quarter you will notice a sense of history from the old fishing community. Make sure to swing by the harbour. Here you’ll find plenty of opportunities for experiences when fishermen return to the port with the load compartment packed with the famous "Frederikshavn Plaice", sold directly from the boat or from one of the many small fish shops. At the harbour you also have the opportunity to attend a real fish auction, which is held every morning at seven o'clock. Feel the atmosphere when the auctioneer with speed and accuracy sells large boxes of freshly caught fish. In every way the harbour is a place of activity and atmosphere. Enjoy both children and adults, who are playing on the water in kayaks or on surfboards, or breathe in the fresh sea air in the cozy marina. Close by the marina, you’ll find the towns nice restaurants, where you can enjoy fresh seafood and other exciting dishes. Just north of Strandby you will find fine beaches - and there is always plenty of space at the beach or in the dunes.
Every summer Strandby offers additional experiences through port festivities and a horse-and flea market.
