Tirsbæk Strand (Tirsbæk Beach) is located on the northern coast of the inlet, surrounded by natural heritage protected wooded coastal hillsides in addition to the landscaped estate of Tirsbæk Castle. The beach is family friendly and offers good facilities. Tirsbæk Beach is also used for winter bathing.
The relatively wide sandy beach is family friendly and there are plenty of nature experiences for the youngest, not least by the shore where a myriad of crustaceans and snails are just waiting to be explored.
Along the beach, a snorkelling reef has been established designed as an underwater sea path. Rowboats and dinghies can moor at the jetty where beachgoers can also bathe using the ladders on either side of the jetty.
By the beach there is a large green recreational area with a kiosk, picnic tables and benches, toilets and parking. The nearby deciduous forest is a great place for nature walks along the trails. Here, there are also campfire sites.
National Cycle Route No 5, The East Coast Route, passes through the area.
During the summer, city bus No. 12 runs from central Vejle to Tirsbæk.
