    Hotel De Kluut

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 19, 2014

    September 2014. Spent a week on Vlieland on camp ground Stortemelk. On the final day of our stay on the island we returned to Hotel De Kluut after twenty years. Way back in 1994 we spent our honeymoon here. This time, however, we did not enter the hotel, because we had to catch our boat back to the mainland.

    Village Oost-Vlieland

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 11, 2014

    There's only one village on the island and it is called Oost-Vlieland. There used to be another village by the name of West-Vlieland (that makes sense, doesn't it?) but that village sadly was 'lost to the advancement of the sea up to 1736, when only two houses remained' (Wikipedia).

    As you walk through the village you will see the local church, the poorhouse which is now a restaurant, and the monument to Willem de Vlamingh, a Dutch explorer who visited parts of the west coast of Australia in the 17th century. Alternatively, you may climb the Waddenzee dike and have a look at the village from the 'back side' - very inspiring to see how the villagers went about in the design of their back gardens.

    Beach

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 10, 2014

    Beach photos, various kinds of jellyfish, with a view of the southern beach (Waddenzee side) at low tide. The blue thing I took to be a jellyfish, but on the day I put this on VT, I read something about an animal called velella, or sea raft, and the blue colour leads me to think that this is what we photographed. In Dutch it is called 'bezaantje'. But correct me if I'm wrong.

    Lighthouse Vuurduin

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 10, 2014

    The lighthouse Vuurduin located on one of the tallest dunes in the Netherlands, the Vuurboetsduin (42 m). Bus stop nearby, but the lighthouse can also easily be reached on foot as it is situated immediately west of the only village of the island, Oost-Vlieland.

    Walk, you're in Vlieland

    by dutchboycalledjan Written May 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vlieland is best discovered walking. Many people rent a bike, but the island is too small for that. The island has some nice woods, even with some small lakes, nature reserves but the main attraction is the coastline. We preferred the North Sea shore, with its ever changing sea. The other side, the Wadden sea, looks better on pictures than in real life.
