You wouldn't believe this

There is a great deal to see on the Haveneiland in the Marker Wadden. Beautiful hiking trails, unique birdwatching hides and a beautiful beach. But the Eilandpaviljoen has a breath taking view over the Markermeer. There’s plenty here for nature-lovers to enjoy.


Explore the exceptional landscape of Marker Wadden on foot, with about 12 km of hiking trails. Along the way, you can observe the plants, insects, fish and birds that have discovered a new habitat for themselves here. Or venture across swampy areas using the boardwalks. The island has a great deal to offer.

Birdwatching cabins

Many birdwatching cabins are scattered along the hiking trails on the island. If you’ve brought your binoculars, you’ll be able to spot countless birds from here. Watch sandpipers and plovers peck at food buried in the silt; see swimming birds at eye level from the Duikeend birdwatching hide; and get to know temporary residents of the island such as stilts, oystercatchers and spoonbills. You may even catch a sea eagle flying by on its way from the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve.

Fun at the shore

On the Marker Wadden islands, the beach is literally at your feet. From a refreshing stroll through the surf to building sandcastles in the sand: there’s something here for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to try a refreshing dip in the surrounding Markermeer lake as well.


The Eilandpaviljoen at the beach of Marker Wadden is opened daily. A wonderful place for a cup of coffee, lunch of a small snack. And that with your bare foot in the sand.

Tastefully comfortable

Make your stay even more comfortable with one of our put together packages. So that the groceries are ready for you in the island house, for example. Or the soft towels are waiting for you. A wonderful luxury!
