4 days beg of july

we'de like to visit one of the islands leaving on a Thurs. and coming home on the Sunday (from Belgium). We have three kids. We want to hire bikes and cycle around, stop on the beach, that sort of things.

1.Could you recommend somewhere to stay?

2. Is one of the island a better choice in case of bad weather? Like offering inside options as museums and such.

Hi there,

Vlieland and Schiermonnikoog are the 'quiet' nature-minded islands, whilst Ameland and Terschelling (and Texel but that's another scope) are more of the mixed-entertainment variety including indoors stuff. So it's always a choice; Ameland and Terschelling aren't bad naturewise also but esp. close to the resorts and campings you can have some late-night beach noise...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Hi, we visited Ameland. Very nice indeed. Boat trip was really interesting with the tides and all. It is mainly biking, beach, walking etc.... I don't think you want to be on any of the islands when it rains, especially with kids. The mainland offers plenty of things to do for kids when it rains. I would suggest staying on the mainland and visit one of the islands as a day trip. We rented a house (Golf Hildenberg, house: Roegte 1) in Appelscha in the province of Friesland. We did lots of things from there, incl. biking in the national park Drents-Friese Wold, Seal Rehabilitation Centre in Pieterburen, swimming pool next to the golf, mini-golf in the area, somewhat outside the village a theme park for youngsters "Duinenzathe". The museum in Assen. We visited Giethoorn. Lots of things to do. Hope you have a nice vacation.
