Exploring the off the grid attractions in the West Frisian Islands

Located in the Wadden Sea, the West Frisian Islands are a chain of islands in the Netherlands. The sparsely populated islands are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a great destination for holidaymakers who seek peace and solitude. Access to the islands is an adventure itself with mud flat hiking the primary mode of transportation in many of them.

Things to do on the West Frisian Islands

Each island has its own unique character based on its landscape, history and the different recreational activities available. Whichever island holidaymakers choose to book a holiday house or holiday apartment on frequent boats and ferries make exploring the region a breeze. Texel Island is a popular choice of holiday rental destination due to its many events and sightseeing opportunities. Visitors can enjoy the Dunes of Texel a national park with an exhibition devoted to underwater life and take pictures of the Moai style statue on Eierland Polder. Many visitors choose to rent a holiday home during the Round Texel Race, the largest catamaran race in the world, or the Ouwe Sundeklaas, a traditional costume festival for children. In addition to Ameland and Schiermonnikoog, Vlieland is another popular holiday rental destination in the West Frisian Islands. Despite being the remotest island in the chain, many visitors choose a holiday home on Vlieland for its historic buildings and the astonishing Vuurboetsduin, a high dune featuring a red lighthouse on top. Holidaymakers can choose an off the grid holiday house or holiday apartment in the woods or along the mudflats.
