Why go?

Between Den Helder in the Netherlands and Esbjerg in Denmark lies an area of natural importance that has no equal anywhere in the world. The Wadden Sea is a world in itself, a world with two faces, ruled in turn by ebb and flood, by sand and water. Like pearls on a necklace, about fifty islands and islets protect the shallow Wadden Sea. The necklace begins with the five Dutch Wadden islands, pearls that each have their own atmosphere and their own character. Five islands, five opportunities for enjoyment!
