Pearl of the Sea, where peace and quiet reign; island of birds and tranquility seekers. Of all the Wadden islands, Vlieland is the most remote.
Peace and quiet reign here. Only disturbed by the cry of a gull or a tern. You run the risk of what islanders jokingly call ‘tidal fever’. After a sunrise on the endless horizon. Or an unprecedented sky that is reflected in the Wadden Sea.
You can cross the whole island by bicycle or on foot. Or go on an excursion through the woods or dunes. Always exciting is a ride with a guide over the mudflats.
A lot of walkers leave Vlieland alone. That is a big mistake. If you are looking for peace and quietness, space and beautiful landscapes you can make beautiful walking-tours. And there is a lovely fresh sea-air.
The coast of Vlieland has wide beaches and offers magnificent views over the sea. From the view of the coast is beautiful. The beach lies shining in the sun and goes in a friendly curve with the sea and the sea can sometimes lighten unlikely bleu. And along the flood mark there are always people walking, weather or no weather. Vlieland is with all its catering industry at the sunny residence the stopping place for walkers.
