The underwater trail is 50 meters long with a maximum depth of 20 meters. There are 9 markers along the trail providing information about what you can see in that area of the reef. The signs are numbered 1-9 with an arrow pointing to the next marker. You will learn about the rich variety of life that lives on and around the stone reef.
Read more about Yarrels blenny that hides in the holes in the reef and in the clay slopes and about the plumose anemone that hunts with a bow and arrow and enjoy the other beautiful strawberry sea anemones. Maybe you will spot a lobster or the rare tadpole fish. The stone reef continues out into the depths and if you turn to the left, you will find the unique steep clay slopes at Søbadet.
How to find: Coming from Brovejen (Road 161), turn at Galsklintvej, drive 400 metres ahead, then turn right at Søbadvej. At the end of the road, you find the yellow building called Søbadet at Little Belt. The stone reef is about 50 metres down the beach towards the Little Belt Bridge. The underwater trail starts at the two red buoys, where the first stones from stone reef are sticking up above the surface.
