The West Frisian Islands are the land, where the water surface merges with the sky, and the inhabitants have been conquering the harsh sea and taming the growing dunes for centuries. The archipelago is bordered by a natural wonder, the Wadden Sea, which has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The inhabited islands of Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog are favorite holiday destinations for the Dutch themselves. Here's what you can do here.
