Nørreklint rises some 17 m above sea level. From here, there is a magnificent view across the island to the south. In fine weather, the broadcasting aerial at Søsterhøj and the chimney of the power station in Kaløvig is visible to the north-west. In a northern direction, you can glimpse the promontery of Skødshoved and the cliffs at Mols Hoved as well as the Sletterhage lighthouse on the Helgenæs peninsula. In a north-easterly direction, the ferry port at Ebeltoft is visible and further out, the small island of Hjelm (The Helmet).
The cliffs at Tunø are home to the handsome and rare auk, the black guillemot (Cepphus grylle). The black guillemot is easy to recognise with its black plumage and white patches on the wings. There are about 60 breeding couples here at Nørreklint on the north-facing side as well as at Sønderklint, the south-facing cliffs.
The cliffs are home to the common gull (Larus canus) and the sand martin (Riparia riparia).
There are a great many common gulls along the Danish coasts. They resemble small herring gulls (Larus argentatus), but their facial expression is milder. The cliffs at Tunø are home to nearly 300 breeding couples.
Nørreklint is also home to about 100 sand martin couples. The sand martin is a small swallow with a dull brown upper part, a white under part and a distinct brown band across the breast.
In order to protect the breeding black guillemots at Nørreklint, people are asked to use the path across the top of the cliffs rather than the beach during the period 15th April – 15th July. Anglers are not allowed on the beach during this period.
