Grenaa is not the most picturesque place to stop at, but it is frequented by many who are on their way over to the islands of Anholt or Laesø, so it does get crowded in the holiday season.
Before heading off to the islands it is often worth it to stop in Grenaa, fuel up and get some supplies. The supermarkets you will find if you follow Havenevej,first comes a Rema 1000, to the left, then Fakta und Kvickly further along on the right, about 1.5km away. The fish shop is on the port grounds just around the corner from Kattegatvej at Søndre Kajgade 4.
If you have small children Grenaa gives them a chance to run around and break the trip. The beach, and the grassed area surrounding is a suitable spot for letting little legs run wild.
You can fuel up on the northeastern side of the marina. It is often crowded so take some time with you.
If you are planning a crew change here, there is a train station at Stadionsplads to get you here and back. Also the ferry over to Anholt might be a welcome alternative to those with a light stomach on stormy days. It leaves just to the north on the other side of the canal, you can’t miss it. The trip takes about 2 1/2 hours. During the week in Summer it leaves at 1pm, Saturdays at 10.30. Check the current timetable here.
Go, See and Do:
While you are here you can visit the Kattegat center to check out dwellers of the local waters, not bad for kids on a rainy day. It is located just to the north of the marina, really hard to miss if you head towards town.
If you would like to go for a bike ride, you can ask at the harbour office to rent a bicycle.
Go for a swim, run, or just fly a kite around the dunes and along the beach.
