Birdwatching in Jomfruland
Jomfruland is the largest of the islands in Jomfruland National Park, and it’s quite a beauty spot. The island is some 4 miles (7 km.) long and only about half a mile (1 km.) at the widest part. To get there, you need to take a ferry, taxi boat or private boat, as it is located about 3 miles (4.5 km.) off the coast.
Jomfruland consists mainly of clay, sand, and rock. Boulder beaches dominate much of the island, particularly the outside of it. The vegetation is very diverse, and you’ll find lush deciduous forests all around the island. In May, you can experience the beautiful wood anemone flowering. Additionally, the island offers culture landscapes, beach meadows, thickets, bare knolls, spruce forests, pine forests, and a tiny lake.
