You can experience this at Melby Overdrev

When you walk in the distinctive landscape at Melby Common, you can see far. The majority of the vegetation only reaches the shins. It might feel like walking on the Russian steppes - open and uniform. But still not. Because there is a great species richness of plants and animals - and there is a short distance to the beach. Melby Overdrev is located right next to the coast.
