Dueodde is a beach in Denmark on Bornholm’s southernmost tip. It is known for its very fine white sand. The area around Dueodde was originally a large sandy area, but in the eighteenth century, it was planted with pines, as well as Ammophila and Leymus grasses to reduce sand drift. Today, Dueodde is a protected area. The sand at Dueodde moves easily with the wind to form dunes. The vast dune area and associated sandy beach start at Haslemere extending some 30 kilometres (19 mi) almost without interruption. Apart from the beach, the only other noteworthy feature is the Dueodde Lighthouse on the southern tip. It is the tallest on the island. Built in 1962, it offers a panoramic view of the surroundings.
The Dueodde Lighthouse (Danish: Dueodde Fyr) is located on the Danish island of Bornholm. It was built during the years 1960–62 and commissioned on 15 August 1962. It is 47 m (154 ft) in height, with a focal height of 48 m (157 ft). It is the nodal point of the southeast coast line, warning ships to keep away from the extreme southern tip of the island. Dueodde Lighthouse is Denmark’s tallest lighthouse and one of the most important lighthouses of the Baltic Sea.
