Tisvildeleje is the coastal part of the area known as Tisvilde. "Leje" roughly translates as 'plain' and used to be a fishermans village. Now most of the fishermen's houses are used as charming summer residences.
To the west of Tisvildeleje, running alongside Tisvilde Hegn, Denmark's fifth largest forest, stretches a kilometre of white, child-friendly sandy beaches lapped by clean salty waters, and fringed by dunes and forests.
The natural surroundings there are exceptionally clean, open and unspoilt.
- Helene Spring is one of Denmark's most famous springs, and legend has it that anyone whose illness has not responded successfully to other forms of treatment must come to the spring on 23 June (Sankt Hans Eve or Midsummer's Eve). Culturally, legend in Denmark has it that if one consumes a certain amount of water from its springs in the night and then stays at Saint Helene's grave until morning, he should be cured of all his sicknesses. 
- Tibirke Church was built on the site of an ancient "vi", a pre-Christian holy place. At the foot of the church near Bækkebrovej is a spring which may have been the place where pilgrims came in days of old. The name means "dedicated to the god Tyr": Ti's vælde or "Tyr's forest" (old Nordic ved/wald). Hence the name Tisvilde. The church was buried by sand dunes in the Middle Ages.
- Helene's Tomb is now a rectangular, grazed area surrounded by low stone fences. The two boulders leaning against each other indicate Helene's Tomb. It is located at Sankt Helenevej, 3220 Tisvildeleje.
- Tisvilde flea market. Every Saturday throughout the summer a large, lively flea market (Tisvilde Loppemarked) is held in the Birkepladsen in front of Tisvildeleje station. The flea market is exclusively for private individuals, which means stalls full of exciting finds from box-rooms and attics. 
- Musik i Lejet. An annual outdoor music festival held each summer.
