Beach and ocean right on the Baltic Sea coast

Scharbeutz offers miles and miles of sandy beaches. The bathing beaches stretch from Haffkrug to Timmendorf beach via Scharbeutz beach. The sand at the bottom of the Baltic Sea forms white ridges. The integrated sports hall is a real highlight, not only for sports groups. The youth hostel with a youth group campsite is directly on the beach. Just a few metres separate the hostel from the sea. The many leisure attractions around the hostel, such as the "Hansapark" amusement park" and "Sea Life Center" aquarium, provide plenty of fun and action!

Beach and ocean in Scharbeutz

On the hostel's own stretch of beach, you can enjoy swimming in the ocean, building sand castles and relaxing in the sun. You can sign up for a sailing course in the adjacent catamaran school. When it's a bit colder, we recommend a visit to the "Ostsee-Therme" pool and sauna complex. It has a wild-water flume, outdoor lagoon, mother-and-child area, salt water pool and a large sauna area. The "Hansapark" amusement park thrills visitors with its rides and imaginative themed areas - from rollercoaster thrills to Pirate Land.
