The wadden sea is a great place to visit if you love nature and silence. At low tide, and calm weather, seals are sunning on the sand beds. Many companies offer walking tours, as it is an area which can be dangerous with high tide - make sure you have a guided tour. We visited by boat, which gives amazing... More

My friend and I went mud walking with our Dutch friend in the Wadden Sea. Neither of us had ever heard of it but wanted to try it. We rented boots as we didn't want to pack them for 1 walk. We did the walk from Pieterburen. We stayed in a room that had bunk beds and could have slept... More
