Ballen Habor

Ballen Harbor is located in peaceful surroundings with beautiful nature in Svendborg Municipality.

Ballen Harbor is located west of Svendborg, approximately 11 km from the city center.

At the harbor, there is a lovely child-friendly beach with a bathing jetty, and the beach is distinguished with a Blue Flag. If you want to venture inland, Syltemae Valley is only 2 km away and offers the opportunity for a beautiful walk on a section of the Archipelago Trail.

Several divers depart from Ballen Harbor, particularly in connection with the controlled sinking of the ferry M/F Ærøsund in October 2014. The ferry was intentionally sunk to create an artificial reef for the enjoyment of marine life and divers.

Ballen Harbor is worth a visit if you desire tranquil surroundings and beautiful nature.
