Holmsland Klit

The Holmsland Klit is a Spit which separates the Ringkøbing Fjord in Denmark Jutland from the North Sea.  It is about 30 km long and between 2 km and a few hundred meters wide.
The region north of Soendervig was one of the most heavily fortified bases on the Danish coast built by the Wehrmacht in 1942. Actually, almost all the bunkers were originally located well camouflaged in the dunes chains, today they are against it directly on the beach due to coastal loss by the North Sea. 

At the northern end is the small town of Søndervig, in the south Nymindegab and north of the center of the harbor town of Hvide Sande.
