The island is an oasis of calm, with many picturesque sights and different attractions just waiting to be discovered by foot or bike. The beach is just 200 metres from your holiday accommodation. There are endless walks to be enjoyed under the watchful eye of the impressive 'Light Tower', as Vlieland's lighthouse is known locally. There are also kilometres and kilometres of cycle paths, which take you through the dunes and beautiful woodlands. Did you know that at 4 metres above sea level, Vuurboetsduin is the highest dune in the Wadden Sea area?
