This is a quiet corner of the island with the statue of the grey monk, after which the island is named, stands.
Schiermonnikoog is composed from "schiere monnik oog ".
Which can be translated to: grey monk island, refering to the grey habits the monks wore. "Oog" means as much as island.
The monks lived on the island during the Middle Ages.
It was quite cold and windy because of the time of year.
This is about the highest point of the island and on a clear day you can see the main land of the netherlands.
Proof of the fights that were fought here during WW II.

During low tide it becomes clear how vaste the beach is. Bout half a mile or so till you reach the sea.
