Blokhus is a village in North Jutland, Denmark. It is located in Jammerbugt Municipality. Blokhus is a popular beach town with around 1 million visitors every year.
Blokhus was originally named Hune Hvarre. In the early 1600s there were barely any trees in the area, so timber was imported from Norway. The locals had to store this timber somewhere, so they constructed some houses out of the timber. These houses became known as 'block houses' (Danish: blokhuse), which gave name to the village.
