Exploring the mudflats is a unique experience for nature lovers. The mudflats is a huge sandbar on the east side of the island that runs dry at low tide and offers a beautiful natural environment to explore.
Although Vlieland is not huge, it offers a wealth of cultural heritage and some particularly interesting museums. One of these is the Abraham Fock Rescue Museum, where visitors can discover all about the history of Vlieland's lifeguards and their heroic actions.
Vlieland offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy horseback riding in nature. Here you can take beautiful rides along the beach, through the dunes and across the vast Vliehors. The island has several riding stables that rent out horses and organize guided tours.
Vlieland offers excellent shopping, with a variety of stores. In addition to a number of souvenir stores, you can also find trendy boutiques with wonderful collections of branded clothing and children's clothing.
Sports and Vlieland seem made for each other. It is wonderful running, horseback riding or mountain biking through the beautiful forests, in the high dunes and over the long beaches. But much more is possible!
