The southern Farø Bridge between Farø and Falster, an important gateway to the area
|Major islands||Lolland, Falster, Møn|
Sydhavsøerne (Lit. English: The South Sea Islands), sometimes also referred to simply as Lolland-Falster from the two largest islands, is an informal but common term used in Danish to refer to the archipelago just south of Zealand, Denmark's largest island where its capital Copenhagen is located. Part of the Baltic Sea, the term covers Lolland, Falster and Møn as well as the numerous smaller islands of the surrounding straits, fjords and waters.
The name is used by Radio Sydhavsøerne, the local radio station covering the area.
The islands are characterised by a mild climate, making them particularly well suited for fruit growing. This is celebrated every year during Sydhavsøerne's Fruit Festival.
