We walked along this beach whilst waiting for a tour to start. Its incredibly quiet, clean and beautiful. The different coloured cabins, and the lighthouse at the back compliment this gem beautifully. Enjoyed collecting seashells along the shore too.

Great view over the island and the sea. Sone interesting stories and facts on the way up - which has small and tight stairs but are easy to climb. Certainly worth a visit!

Also nice biking! From there you can reach de Kaap Nord Beach restaurant, the beach, the sailing club, the Noorman where you book and take the sealspotting trips and daytrips to Vlieland.

Desert-size beach with scenic lighthouse in the background - one of the biggest and most beautiful beaches we have ever come across. It's a bit windy and it involves both positives and negatives, obviously: sand gets everywhere but gentle breeze is refreshing. You can easily...More

This is an amazing place, a large island off the coast of the Netherlands, with wonderful beaches and lots of birds. You have to get a ferry across (interesting in itself). Once there, the walks are great and especially good for bird watchers and wildlife...More

There is so much beach I can't imagine it gets crowded in the summer. There's just that much of it. Nice place to walk even in cooler weather.
