Terschelling is the third inhabited Wadden island as seen from the west. It lies between the North Sea in the north and the Wadden Sea in the south. Almost 80% of its landscape is natural dunes, and you can wander the large beach many pathways for hours without meeting anyone. At low tide the beach is hundreds of metres wide, and the water around it is very shallow; ideal for keeping a good eye on younger children.
Sights on Terschelling
There are lots of attractions to visit on Terschelling: the Brandaris lighthouse is the oldest in the Netherlands. There are also many listed buildings and remnants of the Second World War. In the ‘t Behouden Huys Museum you can learn all about the history of the island and about Willem Barentsz, the local Arctic explorer who spent the winter on Nova Zemlya. The Aike van Stien Museum shows the history of fishing in the region.
