Vlieland Dunes

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.

On the island of Vlieland, the wind and drifting sand create permanent dynamics. This is best seen on the south side of the Vliehors. Salt marshes and new dunes arise in the shelter of a few large drift dunes. Throughout the year there are sand drifts due to the wind, causing dunes to appear and disappear again. It never looks the same here. Be enchanted by the charm of this island!
