The dunes on the island of Vlieland are characterized by a large area of diked salt marshes.
The island is one of the smaller islands in the Dutch part of the Wadden Sea and the dry dunes are relatively low in lime compared to the other islands. As a result, different vegetation will be found on this island compared to Ameland and Texel, for example. Mainly moss, grass and heather grow here, although there are several planted forests on the island. Rent a bicycle and go cycling on this island to enjoy the beautiful view.
