I suppose that's about the best use one can get out of a beach in Denmark. With all the femme bots down in Greece and Spain might as well just use it as a landing strip. Only A.nutters would appreciate such a thing.

True professionals. Just another day at the office for them.
My other home is in the sky inside my Piper Cherokee 180.

Tide is rather low on that beach, something like a couple of feet.

That beach is only flooded when extreme winter storms from north-west coincide with high tide, which happens maybe once every 5 or 10 years on average.
Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs
