The Skagen Light is a breathtaking fusion of four natural phenomena. 

The first phenomenon is the merging reflections of the seas, “mirroring” one another, which result from the narrowness of the Skaw Spit.

The second is the turbulent water of the seas, which reflects more light than still water.

The third is the suspended salt particles in the water that glitter in the sunlight.

Lastly, every grain of sand on the Skagen beach is a tiny prism reflecting light. 

Together, these four phenomena generate the awe-inspiring radiance of the “Skagen Light,” which continues to fascinate visitors every year.
