The Dutch Wadden

Taste the sea and the land

Do you think that the Wadden Sea is all about the West Frisian islands? Well, you may be correct literally, but certainly not figuratively. There is no need to go all the way to one of the islands to enjoy the Wadden Sea area. From the infinite horizon in the Oldambt area to the scenic areas in the National Park Lauwersmeer, the coast of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage site has plenty to see and do.

Wadden land by the dyke

Explore the unexpected beauty of the salt marshes and polders. Walk on the seabed when the Dutch Wadden are standing clear of water at low tide and see how seals on the sandbanks wait for fresh food to arrive. Take in thousands of migratory birds foraging on the mud flats and along the Dollard estuary. What do you feel like doing? Check before you visit the Groningen Wadden Sea area.
